Avocado stuffed with egg salad
Avocados are celebrated for their unique nutrient content and health benefits. For example, eating avocados has been associated with decreased weight, blood sugar levels, and heart disease risk factors like LDL (bad) cholesterol. Eggs are also highly nutritional and may reduce hunger, stabilize blood sugar levels, and increase HDL (good) cholesterol. Combining the two by stuffing half of an avocado with a few tablespoons of egg salad makes a nutritious, paleo-friendly snack that keeps you full for hours.
Turkey is an ideal source of protein, B vitamins, and minerals, such as zinc and selenium. Paleovally brand offers turkey sticks made from pasture-raised turkey, which may include more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than conventionally-raised turkey.
