Smoked Salmon Avocado Yoghurt Bowls
You couldn’t get a FRESHER combination of ingredients that compliment each other so well! This delicious meal takes 10 mins to assemble (at the most), packs a very desirable 23g of protein per serve and contains those beautiful dietary fats that keep us satiated for a longer period of time. This is the perfect lunch recipe that your blood sugar levels will thank you for!
Here we used REED avocados. The creamiest, nutty type of avocado, that works well with a crispy snappy crunchy cucumber. The flavours and textures work well and with only having 8 ingredients (three being; salt, dill and lemon) the beautiful flavour of the REED avocado is not lost 🙂 If you have the pleasure of making this recipe with a REED avocado, be sure to check them daily for ripeness as their skin can remain green even as they are ripening.
Nutritionally, this dish packs a real Vitamin B12 punch! Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin found in certain foods: meat, fish, milk products and eggs. Found in this dish via the yoghurt and salmon.
For most adults, the recommended daily intake (RDI) is 2.4 mcg, though it’s slightly higher for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. One serve of this dish gives us 67% of our daily needs. Vitamin B12 is necessary for making red blood cells and is important for the health of our nerve cells, it also play’s an important role in our body’s energy production. I think we all want to make sure we are getting adequate Vitamin B12 into our systems on the daily for that extra energy boost!
