Better Than the Best
Good, better, best
Never let it rest
Until the good is better and the better is best
This was a song my second grade teacher used to sing to my class, but it’s still something I repeat to myself today.
Although I may not apply the message of this song to my piano playing skills anymore, I can still use it in many areas of my life.
In the kitchen for an example…
Remember when I told you about my obsession with mixing quinoa with cottage cheese that had been blended with cocoa?
Well, I deemed that combination to be the best ever. But, I have an even better combination for you today and I need to share it with you!
With the addition of avocado…
I was able to make something strange, but good into something strange, but better
I took it to the next level.
Whipped Cottage Cheese with Avocado
1 cup cottage cheese
2 oz. avocado
liquid of choice such as milk, water, etc.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. I like adding 1/4 cup of liquid first and then keep adding 1 – 2 TBSP from there until I reach the desired consistency.
You could add cocoa into the mix as well, but trust me on this one…
It’s kind of fun eating something green in a strange kind of way
I usually still add my quinoa into the mix for a full meal deal
but this morning I added a mix of quinoa and amaranth and it was just as delicious!
So, not only does the addition of avocado to whipped cottage cheese make it taste even better, but it adds nutrition too! Lots of healthy fats, good protein, and complex carbs in this meal!
Give it a try!
And don’t fear the green
Have you ever heard of the song I shared at the beginning of this post?
Is there a song someone taught you when you were young that you still think of today?
What is your favourite use for avocado?
Have a great day, friends!
Love to you all!
