This wonderful dip is rich in flavor, creamy, hearty and satiating. It tastes fantastic scooped onto vegetable crudités like celery, cucumber, radishes, asparagus, cauliflower, tomato slices, bell pepper, broccoli, cabbage leaves and lettuce leaves. It’s also incredibly delicious served alongside steamed potatoes, baked potato fries, or even on top of a green salad. But what’s even more impressive than it’s flavor and versatility is the healing properties of its two primary ingredients: peas and avocado.
Green peas are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and manganese. They are a great source of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fats in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are also a fantastic weight loss food since they have the ability to ward off hunger and keep you feeling satiated for long periods of time. Green peas contain a compound called coumestrol which has been shown to help lower the risk of stomach cancer and they also contain anti-inflammatory properties making them a particularly good food for those who suffer with autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, COPD, heart disease, lupus, fibromyalgia, and bursitis.
Avocado has creamy flesh that is the ultimate gut soother for those with food sensitivities, Crohn’s disease, colitis, or IBS. Avocados possess anti-inflammatory compounds that have an aspirin-like quality without thinning the blood; this reduces narrowing and swelling of the digestive tract. This fruit also has polyp-reducing properties, helping you to prevent or rid yourself of these small growths of the intestinal lining. Avocados are amazing for the brain, too. A healthy source of omega-6 fatty acids, they can help restore the central nervous system and alleviate Alzheimer’s and dementia. Eating avocados also has an anti-aging effect on the skin, reducing dryness, giving you a healthy glow, and contributing to the disappearance of dark undereye circles.
