Easy Potato Dish
One of the reasons I wrote Real Food Recovery cookbook, is because many people tell me it is not easy to cook or eat well. As a mom of 4+ kids, it took years to figure out how to spend less time in the kitchen and more with my kids and foster kids.
Somehow, throwing whole, real foods together was easy and delicious. Plus, my kids were eating healthier. This potato and avocado dish hits the spot and is undoubtedly one of our family favorites.
When we began to support more foster kids, we notice how their health would improve too. So I did what wassuccessful, and created a product to help support more foster kids – authored a cookbook with all these simple, real food recipes. This dish is included in our cookbook because it is; fast, filling, delicious, and healthy.
The creaminess of avocados pairs beautifully with the starchiness of potatoes. Adding coconut oil, ghee (our favorite!), schmaltz (our favorite), or red palm oil gives variety to the flavor so you can cook this over and over with a different fat choice each time. Plus, it provides healthy additional nutritious fats for our bodies to thrive. *source below
