You should probably see a doctor about that. Not sweating when you're hot/working out/etc is NOT good. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/anhidrosis/DS01050

I will have to try that! You put the egg in the avocado raw? I didn't even know you could bake eggs like that, cool!

You know what's crazy? When I was thinking about starting keto/a low carb diet, I was wondering what the heck I'd eat! Now I feel like I'm eating a MUCH greater variety of food than I ever was before. It's so awesome!

I wish they were my ideas LOL I've just been going crazy browsing blogs for low carb, quick, and easy recipes. Emphasis on "easy"! Like I said, I'm a terrible cook, and when I'm hungry I want to eat immediately, so I do a lot of ideas hunting online.

Yep, cut an avocado in half and take out a pit. Usually the egg is too big to fit into the hole nicely so you wind up having to cut out some of the avocado (either where the pit was, or just around the sides to prevent egg white spill over). Just top with whatever seasoning you want, and bake on 425 F for 20 minutes, give or take a few.

The coolest part is that the egg sort of "seals" the heat in the avocado - I left it siting for a bit and when I sat down to eat, it was still warm

You are making my mouth seriously water looking at that :9 we are having tilapia tomorrow for dinner ... I will see of we have some avocados in the fridge & maybe I can make those as a side dish with the fish, sounds like a good accompaniment for it do you let the avocado get room temp (if its been in the fridge)? Or can you just pop it right I the oven?

Sorry for all the dumb questions I am like do not graced with cooking talent

LOL I have no cooking talent, either. I burn toast, so I've been thinking that it's a good thing bread is out of my diet now

I was going to cook it straight out of the fridge, but I wound up leaving it out for a bit while waiting for the oven to preheat. I didn't even think about the avocado temperature, though!

I bought an avocado tonight with the intention of making it with tuna tomorrow. Now I'm really, really tempted to try the egg thing.

Also, why the hell are avocados $1.00-$2.49 at the freaking grocery store?! I can get them at Aldi for 39 cents each. I really suck at picking avocados, though. The first one I opened at lunch today was all speckly inside and did not look right, so I tossed it.

I always smell them first. People give me weird looks. lol. Same thing with eggs too actually. Not like stick my nose in there or anything, but some cartons definitely have a rotten egg smell. Bleah.

The avocado egg thingy looks awesome. I wonder if my kids would eat it.

Today we had organic blue corn chips with chili beans, cheese melted on top, and Tillamook sour cream. Sam just ate the sour cream and threw the rest on the floor.

That looks pretty amazing! I'll have to try that!

You can eat alot of things you're allergic to cooked/baked without having a reaction. Heating them up kills the stuff that triggers your allergies. I'm extremly allergic to peaches (as in hospitol /Epipen) but I can eat them if cooked/baked form.
