This first healthy avocado recipe is a great way to get all the vitamins you need for starting your day on the right foot. There are a lot of variations here.

Sweet Potatoes will provide the very base of your salad.
After cutting up an avocado and adding it to a separate plate with the sweet potatoes, add a handful of blueberries as well. Use lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper as a dressing for your salad. The whole process shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. The reason these three ingredients work well is because of their nutritional value.
