Simple Power Snacks – Avocado and Sunflower Seeds

This super simple snack packs a punch and lots of energy for the rest of your busy day.

I am not a great cook, I’m good when I want to be, but honestly my mind is usually somewhere else and following recipes is really, really hard for me. Any distraction – 3 kids, the dog, a friend, a flower – and boom, we are having “blackened” food again … usually without the Cajan part. So I started making my food simple. Really simple. I wanted healthy and easy.


  • Avacado
  • Roasted and salted sunflower seeds without the shell

The Cooking Part …

  • Cut the avacado
  • Remove the Seed
  • Sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top – about a handful or so
  • Spoon it out of the avocado shell and eat it
  • You can add salt, pepper, garlic salt, chili powder, etc for some extra flavor and spice.

What to serve with …

This goes well with all sorts of stuff: tuna fish, tomatoes, salads of all sorts, crackers, celery
