I Was Inspired! 0

I was scrolling through one of my social media feeds, which I have kept to a minimum lately. I mostly scroll to see what my friend, Deb has posted for wise comments that will have me laughing. But there it was. And by one of my favorite places no less. Right there in the middle of my scrolling it stopped me in my tracks. It was the answer to my "poorly planned supper" mishaps. It was the inspiration for my creativity.

Supper Disaster Averted! 0

I hope you found the opportunity to add avocado to some of your grilling this past week. This weeks recipe was completely unscripted {as are many of my meals}. My husband works late and I can stay at the studio for hours on end and not want to leave and one evening got a little later than most and we had no plan for supper. Does anyone else lack in the planning area like we do? 
So what does a person do? I had a wise woman tell me a long time ago that if you have no idea what you're going to make and your husband is headed home then just start to sauté and onion and figure it out as you go. He will love the smell and think you have it all together! 😂 I might have tried it but Allan was already well aware of the situation. When there is nothing left to do, fling the refrigerator doors wide open and start pulling stuff out. I'm not going to lie, I kind of have fun doing this! So....I grabbed a bag of salad mix that included the nuts and dressing. I don't often do this but it must have been my lucky week! There were a few chicken strips left from my daughters meal, boiled eggs, and, you guessed it...avocado! I opted to heat the chicken just a bit, mixed the salad together, sliced the eggs and avocado to top it and we had a very delicious, very quick, and relatively protein dense meal that would sustain us. 
This has encouraged me to look at more salad options with any leftovers to clean out the fridge. For the summer keep some nuts/seeds, a little fruit such as strawberries or pineapple, a salad mix and you have yourself a little gourmet meal! So as promised, I am ending this with some of my favorite benefits to my skin from eating avocados!
Benefits to your skin when you eat avocados
  1. Avocado contains several essential antioxidants and vitamins that can help nourish you skin from the inside and help you with that natural glow.
  2. Eating avocado (or applying it topically) will help you skin obtain some essential fatty acids which help keep your skin soft and supple.
  3. Avocados are naturally enriched with vitamin C and vitamin E. Both vitamins help combat free radical activity (free radicals cause damage to cells).
  4. Avocado pulp is rich in properties (B-carotene, lecithin, and linoleic acid) that help moisturize your skin from the inside (including chapped lips).
  5. Avocado may help manage acne due to it containing lauric acid which in abundant in anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

I’m letting you in on a little secret…I make THE BEST guacamole! I’m not just tootin’ my own horn, my family measures all guacamole by mine.

The Perfect Pair 0

Last week on Instagram I mentioned my current avocado crush and I thought I’d share one of my favorite combos... Avocado Bacon Boats! What? What can be better than avocado and bacon? Enjoy this simple dish with crackers, chips, veggies, or top a burger or chicken with it. I put it back in the shell and give each person their own boat. 

Here’s the recipe : 

Cook 4 slices of bacon crispy {we don’t judge you if you accidentally make 1/2 lb!} Crumble and set aside

In a blender add:

  • 2 avocados
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/3 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Juice of 1/2 small lime

Blend until creamy

  • Add about 3/4 of the crumbled bacon into the avocado mixture.

Spoon the dip into the boats and top each boat with the remaining crumbled bacon. 

There are so many ways to amp up this recipe but this is a great basic start!

Nuts {and other things} for healthy skin. 114

At Rese & Co. we love making products to help your skin be its most beautiful, natural, and nourished. We also understand that’s not just an “outside job”. We have pulled together a short list of items to add to salads, main dishes, as a stand-alone snack, or…well…there’s really a zillion ways to add them to your diet routine. Though the list is primarily nuts {in the most literal sense of the term}, we have included a couple other sources to consider as well.
