Perfect Pair: Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

Not only is this a delicious salad, but the benefits of the combination will boost your health and slow down aging by reducing cellular inflammation!

I love learning about foods and their medicinal purposes, and in addition, what foods paired together create an even bigger beneficial bang (than when eaten on their own)!

When I cook for myself, I cook with a purpose and choose foods for their health benefits :) do I always want flax seeds on my yogurt?  No, but I always sprinkle a little on because probiotics (yogurt) need high fibrous foods (flax) to thrive and do their thang’ in our tummies!

When I cook for my clients, it is with these intentions as well…every ingredient I choose serves a specific purpose… I LOVE IT… So fun!

Anyway, I love this combination and have been eating it almost every day down here in Mexico… can making fruit facials….check it out here!

Grapefruits are rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that’s been shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage. But when you pair grapefruit with avocado, the avocado’s healthy fats actually help increase lycopene absorption, making it more available for your body to use. says Dr Oz 

Lately I’ve been enjoying making a Lemon Honey Flax oil dressing for this salad.  I like this Flax oil for dressings.  And anything tastes better with chopped nuts on top and fresh greens.

That’s called passionate about your work! Eric in his element
