The Healthy Sandwich Replacement
We already know avocados add a creamy element to sandwiches, but one slice on a sandwich can get lost amid the bread and other ingredients. Instead, try using a halved avocado (pit removed) as a serving vessel for practically any kind of non-leafy salad. In the place where the pit used to be, you can spoon in anything from grain-based dishes, made with quinoa or brown rice, to vegetable mixes consisting of corn, beans or, really, any chopped veggies. You can leave the skin on and scoop out the avocado as you're eating, using your spoon, and each bite will have a bit of that rich and tasty fruit.
