Sardine Stuffed Avocado : Full of good Nutrients : LCHF and Paleo


Did you know sardines are rich in numerous nutrients see chart below 


Did you also know that avocados are a great source of B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C. 
Read more on avocados and sardines at this site here

So when I saw this lovely recipe idea which combined both sardines, avocados, and many other great ingredients, I thought it one to share. Doesn't it look delicious in that picture above! I have shown the ingredients here, so why not make a note of them for your shopping list!

Ingredients (1 serving):
1 large avocado, seed removed (200g / 7.1 oz)
1 tin sardines, drained (90g / 3.2 oz)
1 tbsp mayonnaise (15g / 0.5 oz)
1 medium spring onion or bunch chives (15g / 0.5 oz)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp turmeric powder or 1 tsp freshly ground turmeric root (preferred)
¼ tsp salt e.g pink Himalayan 


To see the step by step guide to make these delicious sardine stuffed avocado do use this link here, I'm sure you'll be glad you did. 


This lovely recipe idea is from Martina (pictured above). She lives in the UK, and has always been passionate about nutrition and healthy living. She started eating low-carb in 2011, shortly after she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. Since then, she's been trying to figure out what works best for her and discovered some of the great benefits of low-carb eating. Following a low-carb, paleo-friendly diet plan helps her maintain a healthy weight while eating real food.

I hope you may sit down soon and enjoy this avocado recipe idea ...

All the best Jan

I don't like avocados but I must say that this looks so appetising, perhaps I should try it again.

I have to admit that eating sardines is not something I think about, but after seeing this recipe and reading about how good they are for you, I will put a tin on my shopping list the next time I go shopping. Thank you Jan :)

Hello, the stuffed avocado looks delicious. I do not like sardines either, maybe something else could be substitute another item. Have a happy weekend!

Thanks for your comment.
Avocados and sardines are great foods for good nutrition, but if you are not too keen on avocado why not enjoy the sardines in a salad! This Greek one is nice ... but obviously you could use your favourite salad foods too if you'd prefer.

Avocado's are so delicious but if you are not keen on sardines, why not substitute them for chicken ... like this recipe suggestion 'Avocado filled with Cajun Chicken'

Yes, like Debbie if you are not too keen on sardines, a substitution like chicken or prawns works well.
