After an easy run in the sun I thought what should we have for lunch? Something not too heave (as we are having Paella for dinner later) but still filling and of course nutritious?
I saw this recipe few days ago but as always I add my personal twist to it.
Enough to feed 2 athletes’-ish:
2 avocados (ripped at home for 3 days) – cut in big chanks
1 red grapefruit – I only used the flesh without any pith.
1 bag watercress
For the dressing:
1 Lemon – squize the juice
1 tsp of wholegrain mustard
1 tsp of English mustard
2 tbsp of Virgin Olive Oil
Pintch Salt and ground black pepper
Mix all ingredients together so you get a nice and shine dressing.
I did dressing first, then cut the avocados and put them in the dressing to avoid them going black. Give a good mix. Arrange avocados on a big plate. Cut the grapefruit segments over the avocados (so you get this delicious juice too). Put the watercress on top. Drizzle more dressing over. Ready to serve! Served with German rye bread (or any wholegrain breads you like).
Doesn’t it look delicious?!
Did you know that if taken weight for weight, watercress contains more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and as much vitamin C as oranges? Clearly this is one of the top super-foods which we all should include in our diets.
