Recipe Day — Avocado Chicken Salad

The health benefits of avocados blew me away!  They are full of a wide variety of nutrients that help so many health conditions.  I was particularly interested to read of their anti-inflammatory properties, since my beloved husband has arthritis, which he manages well with diet and supplements.  Anti-inflammatory foods make it as regulars on my grocery list!

Here is a chicken salad recipe that is low glycemic and chock full of foods that are good for you.

Avocado Chicken Salad


  • 2 large avocados
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup button mushrooms, finely sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons sunflower seed kernels (or chopped pecans, or other nuts)
  • 1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste



Chop one avocado and slice the other into one inch slices.  Mix all the ingredients except the sliced avocado, which you will fan out over the top of the salad to make it pretty.

If you like your food a little spicier, you can add 2 tsp. curry powder.

This turned out really tasty!  Next time I’m going to halve some grapes and throw them in, too.  It’s not difficult and is packed with nutrients. Just remember that it does have calories, even though it is low glycemic, so you can’t scarf down the whole bowl!

Eating to live and living for Christ,

Susan Jordan Brown

Not only will you feel really sick and tired as a result, but you
will be physically hurting your body. The Paleo diet has many names-the Caveman Diet, the Hunter-Gather Diet-but all those names are synonyms
for the same thing, which is a shift in lifestyle that works.
Paleo diet recipes can be the key that unlocks the door
to sustained pain relief.

The ingredients in this are full of fat! Mayonnaise, avocado, sunflower, seeds, nuts! It may be low glycemic, but will raise your cholesterol way high!

Avocados do have fat, but they are a source of good fats that you should be eating. The fat content does give them a lot of calories, but that’s the only thing you need to consider when eating them. They are low glycemic and healthy — so enjoy!

Is it true that avocado have a lot of fat? Should we avoid eating to much of it?
