We had avocados a lot as kids. I remember my dad cutting one in half, then me and my little sister having a half each filled with cottage cheese. Something so simple was one of our favorite treats. So yes, lots of lovely memories.
Not only that but Avocado is a popular health food; full of vitamins and minerals (I would list them off but there’s quite a few), healthy fats, fibre, antioxidants and more potassium than bananas! Add some black eyed beans (filled with fibre, potassium, protein and iron) and it makes a pretty healthy meal.
One thing: don’t overcook the bulgur or the couscous and also make sure that it is drained well, otherwise you may end up with a rather mushy salad.
