Tomato, Pepper & Radish Salad in Avocado Shell

What’s awesome about this recipe is that besides taking little time to make, it’s incredibly nutritious. The avocado is abundant in nutrients – it packs 2 grams of protein, and 9 grams of carbs of which 7 are fiber. This means that only 2 grams are ‘net’ carbs which makes the avocado a low-carb food. In addition, this salad also has the health benefits of radishes. Radishes are known to be beneficial to the liver and stomach – it helps your body to eliminate toxins and waste. These two ingredients alone make this salad a go-to recipe for something healthy and easy to make!
