Avocado Superfood Burger (VG + GF)

Updated: Aug 13

I didn't used to like avocados - I cannot really explain why, but I think I found them 'too rich' and 'too creamy' to my liking. But only until I discovered the numerous uses and benefits of avocados. Nowadays, a day won't pass without me having this strange green deliciousness included in one of my meals!

Avocados are a nutrient-dense (believe it or not) fruit that contains lots of vitamins and minerals. Avocados can improve your heart's function and support the digestive health, skin, hair and eyes.

Avocado

Is high in fat but has NO cholesterol! These avocado's healthy fats (essential Omega 3's and 6's) are necessary for a healthy metabolism and they also help to lubricate the intestines, moisten dry lungs, soothe the joints, moisturise dry hair, skin and nails. Moreover avocados are packed with vitamins, minerals and even complete proteins.


Did you know? Avocado is actually a fruit!


Mushroom

Mushrooms have an earthy taste, hence they have the ability to keep you grounded as well as to calm your nervous system. In Ayurveda mushrooms are considered tamasic (meaning they make your consciousness sleepy).


Did you know? Raw mushrooms are almost indigestible. I suggest you always cook your mushrooms before eating them.
