  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1⁄3 cup cottage cheese
  • 15 macadamia nuts, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fill the avocado with cottage cheese and sprinkle with macadamia nuts.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
Not a fan of cottage cheese? Try these five alternative filling ideas instead:
  1. Tinned salmon in brine, drained. Top with cream cheese, lemon juice and dill or parsley to garnish.
  2. Try a low carb version of a breakfast burrito - Add cooked beef mince, grated Cheddar, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and a squeeze of lime.
  3. BLT - Just add bacon, lettuce and tomato.
  4. Go Caprese style! Add a salad of buffalo mozzarella or boccconcini cheese with sweet cherry tomatoes, and basil with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vingear.
  5. Scramble some eggs and top with cripsy bacon – YUM!
