“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.

Guacamole

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced

1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

  In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice.

Egg Muffins Recipe

Makes 10 to 12

Ingredients

Light olive-oil spray
6 eggs
Sea salt flakes
Freshly ground black pepper

Flavor combinations:
Crumbled feta, olives and finely chopped fresh chili or chili flakes
Grated Parmesan, finely chopped scallions and diced tomatoes
Smoked fish (trout, mackerel or salmon), chopped into small pieces, chopped dill and plain yogurt

For serving:
1 large ripe avocado
1 scallion, finely chopped
A handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. runny honey
 

 Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°. Spray 10 to 12 sections of a muffin pan with olive oil, brushing each hole to coat really well, then place in the oven.

Whisk the eggs in a pitcher with a splash of water and salt and pepper.

Take the hot pan out of the oven and pour in the egg mixture to fill halfway up each section, then top each one with your chosen ingredients. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.

Meanwhile, peel, pit and dice the avocado, then combine in a bowl with the scallion and parsley, adding the lemon juice and a little honey to balance the acidity. Season to taste.

Remove the muffins from the oven and leave to cool for a minute or 2. Remove from the pan—they may stick a bit, so use a palette knife to release the sides. Serve with the avocado salsa.
