Food Spotlight: Avocado
I’ve recently become obsessed with avocado. It’s like bacon— except better. It makes everything taste ten-times more delicious AND its good for you. Unlike bacon, avocados are a “good” fat. They are rich in monounsaturated fats and thus rich in health benefits, including lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
Check out these recipes from the New York Times and Health Magazine to start incorporating this green goodness into your diet today. If you haven’t discovered the amazingness that is avocado, you are missing out. Go buy one now and give it try!
No, seriously. HEB is down the street. Do it.
Keep it real,
