Since I'm Baha'i I've been fasting these past 12 days (7 days left!). Waking up at 5:25 AM and trying to get as much nutritional food and water into my body before the sun rises, means being choosy with what I eat. My current obsessions are open faced avocado sandwiches (with a little bit of salt) and Tofurky's Italian Sausage with sun dried tomatoes and basil. They both get * * * * * stars. Sumptuous!
Avocados provide 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E and B and folic acid. They are high in Omega 3 and 6. Also they are known to promote healthy skin and hair.
Tofurky's sausages have a high protein content with one sausage providing 29 grams. The fat content is on the high side too with 13 grams, but as my fiancee says that's why they taste sooo good. Plus with 15% of my daily requirements for Iron and only 12 grams of carbohydrates it makes it all worth it.
