Buttered Spinach and Creamy Avocado Bowl Recipe

Not a difficult recipe, I intuitively came up with this snack and it is a very healthy 80 calories to boost your energy and end hunger. Keto, low carb, no carb and paleo friendly (sans butter and parm).

1 cup spinach

1/4 avocado diced

1/2 cup broccoli florets

1/2 tbsp butter (optional)

1 tbsp shaved parmesan

Salt and pepper to taste

The quickest way to put this together is to microwave the spinach and broccoli topped with the butter and parmesan for 1 minute on high. If you are going without dairy, you can boil both greens in some water until the broccoli is bright green. If using dairy, stir the spinach after removing from microwave. Dice avocado and put on top of the spinach and broccoli mix.

So satisfying, all 3 greens are healthy and hunger suppressing vegetables. Spinach and avocados act like diuretics so help you to lose water weight. Great for after workout or as a mini meal.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe, Gluten Free

This is a lovely, rich filling recipe for those of you on carb reduction meal plans such as keto, South Beach, etc. Gluten free, low carb. I had this in a New Orleans restaurant and decide to make it home for myself.

Salmon, Shrimp and Portabella Mushroom Ponchatrain Recipe

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream

Tsp of garlic, minced

1/2 cup spinach leaves

1 tsp parsley

Ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup portabella mushrooms

Diced tomato

Fish or chicken

Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute your garlic and mushrooms. Add your quarter cup of cream or half-and-half. I find half and half to be rich enough for me but you can add heavy cream if you would like it to be creamier. Add other spices and wilt the spinach in the sauce. A squeeze of lemon could be added here if you wish but I find it’s not necessary and not part of the original recipe.

Pour over chicken and shrimp, fish and crab meat, or fish and shrimp. This goes great on vegetables as well.
