My Boys will eat up their RAW Avocado, Tomato and Corn

19 Oct

One of the easiest ways to get my husband and son to eat raw is by serving up raw corn and guacamole!

My local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program has sent me fresh corn for the pass few weeks.  My son will eat the fresh raw corn on the cobb.  My husband likes his raw off the cobb with garlic. 

Mix together:
corn off the cobb
garlic powder
sea salt
extra virgin olive oil
cilantro, optional

Fresh corn eaten in moderate quantities balances all constitutional types according to Ayurveda. It is a warming food that strengthens the body and aids in kidney and bladder functions.

At the same meal, I will serve a simple guacamole with homemade raw chips.  It is a great way to get younger kids active in the kitchen – especially when they get to mash avocado with a mortar and pestle!
Have your child mash with mortar and pestle:
1 garlic clove, first then
2 avocados
Chop and add:
1 tomato, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
1 lime, juiced
1 small bunch of cilantro, chopped 
salt, to taste
scallions, to garnish

Serve with homemade flax seed chips.

Avocados strengthen the body and restore the liver, lungs, plasma and skin.  They are considered a heavy food, however, and therefore must be eaten in small amounts.
