Avocado with sugar? with lemon juice? salad?
I can't believe y'all
here's my howto on a delicious snack containing mostly avocado:
there's different types of avocados. There is green ones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Avocado.jpeg
) and rather purple ones (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Avacado444.jpg
). I remember the purple ones to be more tasty. I like them best when they've been out for a few days.
I take one and cut it up, then take the stone out. using a spoon, I get all the eatable stuff out and put it on a plate (if i cut through the peel too easily (with the spoon), I know that I've left it out for too long :P). Stone and peel go into the trash can.
Next, I take a fork and mash the avocado-flesh while adding salt and pepper (in larger amounts than you'd think. do it to taste) until it looks kinda like green mashed potatoes (mashing them too long will influence the taste. you just have to try what you like best).
The key thing now is to use the avocado as a spread for German bread (there's three types I like it best with: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ischbrot-1.jpg
. I couldn't find a better pic for the last type. the bread needs to be fresh otherwise it doesn't taste nearly as good). Usually, I use more spread than bread
And of course add more salt and pepper if it doesn't taste perfectly yet.
Meditating guru kinda people would actually say that it is possible to change your food preferences (well, they don't use the technique for changing food preferences very much, as far as I know...) It's called mental training. there's also a more efficient technique called alpha training where you first get into a state of deep relaxation (a state between being asleep and awake. your body actually sleeps, while your brain works on a lower frequency and is much much more receptive). How to get into that state (which is supposedly also quite good for learning eg vocabulary extremely fast and effectively) you can read in books, on the internet or by visiting seminars about that.
It has to do with self motivation (not the state but the alpha/mental training). You basically suggest to your subconscious that you enjoy doing something (eg eating something). explicitly you tell yourself in easy language (and in your head) that you like avocado (eg "I like avocados and enjoy eating them"; it's better to use own phrases) over and over again, while you imagine yourself eating one with much pleasure and delight while imagining these good feelings as intensively as you can over and over again.
They did a test on how well this mental training works for a different problem. They took three basketball teams with basically the same strength. One of them practiced the layup an hour a day for one week. The second team didn't practice at all, and the third team imagined themselves doing the layup an hour per day for one week (which is called mental training).
At the end of the week, team one increased its hit ratio to 110%, team two decreased its hit ratio to 95% and team three increased up to 107%.
