Blueberry and Avocado Salad

Print

Recently my boyfriend and I have started a gluten and dairy free diet to improve our overall digestive health. Over the last year I have worked with new recipes that are easy on the digestive system and fantastic enough to satisfy our picky palates. Below is one of the staple recipes in our diet; a Blueberry and Avocado Salad. This is a vegan recipe, but you can always add some parmesan or oily fish if desired. I hope to be able to share more soon!

For all of you nutritional nerds out there (like me) see below for the nutritional breakdown.

Blackberries are notable for their high nutritional contents of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate acid, and manganese. Blueberries rank highly among fruits for antioxidant strength.

Avocados have 35% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K. Avocados have a high fiber content of 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fiber. Avocados serve as a natural antibacterial component, are currently being researched as having anti-cancer activities and the ability to treat hypertension. Enjoy!
