Hi there, WordPress friends and followers!
I’m excited to announce that the new Naturally Lindsey site is finally here! This WordPress site will no longer be updated, so please head over to naturallylindsey.com, enter your email on the right side of the page, and click the big green “subscribe” button so you don’t miss out on what’s in store.
To give you a sneak peak… over the next month I’ll be giving you great new recipes, my fall fitness guide, and I’ll be hosting a GIVEAWAY. Plus, tons of fall recipes are in store — yes, that means PUMPKIN everything!
Thank you all for your continued support, I hope to see you over at the new naturallylindsey.com :-)
So I did this once a long time ago but now I’m bringing it back and switching the name around. Why? ‘Cause it’s my blog and I do what I want, that’s why! Feature Five Friday is just my way to recognize all the great food blogs and gluten-free, dairy-free, whole food recipes that I come across throughout the week. It also gives me a chance to share them with you! This week, the featured ingredient is avocados. And boy do I love avocados. So creamy, so delicious. Full of good fats that keep you full and do wonders for your skin, brain, and body. Sometimes I even eat them straight out of the shell topped with sea salt or hot sauce!
According to World’s Healthiest Foods, avocado is a wonderful source of fiber, vitamin K, copper, and folate, and can help fight inflammation, promote blood sugar regulation, and support cardiovascular health (thanks to its high Omega-3 content, which is beneficial on its own). Avocados contain high levels of carotenoids, including beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein. Better yet, adding avocado to salad increases your absorption of two key carotenoid antioxidants, lycopene and beta-carotene by 200-400%, so you’re really getting the most out of those vegetables! It’s also though to have anti-cancer benefits as well! Not bad for such an unsuspecting fruit. Now on to the recipes!
Last night I put up a Facebook page, so be sure to check it out here! Like the page to get my healthy, gluten- and dairy-free recipes right on your newsfeed! I’ve also added a Facebook widget right over there <—- for easy access. You can also subscribe via email by clicking that big orange “subscribe” button. I appreciate any and all support, and can’t wait for what 2014 brings! Thanks for following!
