Eat–for Good Health

With two new young couples with toddlers and early elementary kids on the block, I have met them but haven’t brought them food gifts.  Today I’m making three grapefruit and avocado salads.  One is for us.  A delicious healthy salad is more of a crowd pleaser than a sweet treat.  Grapefruit and Avocado Salad by pigpigscorner

Ingredients to serve 4:
1 head butter lettuce or any favorite lettuce
1 grapefruit, peeled, sectioned
1 tomato, sliced
1 avocado, peeled, sliced lengthwise
French dressing, low fat with less sugar
Line each salad plate with a leaf. Shred remaining lettuce and place on leaves. Arrange grapefruit sections, tomato slices, and avocado slices on top. For new neighbors, serve with French dressing in a dixie cup with the salad in a one-use throwaway container.

    Mary Alice, will you be making your white Christmas cake for the block party again this year– cause I will need to brace myself!

    I will, Janessa, it’s red and green! Avocado contains healthy HDL cholesterol and this good group serves to boost the ratio of HDL to bad cholesterol. A high ratio is healthy for the heart. When the ratio is tipped toward bad cholesterol, arteries can become clogged or damaged. Foods that contain refined sugars, processed grains, refined and lab-created fats work together to raise bad cholesterol.
