I saw that recommended on some show today (either The Doctors or The Chew). I never thought of trying it for that but maybe I will if I end up with something for a sandwich again.

I love avocado! I'll definitely have to try that in tuna instead of mayo because it sounds delicious!

every time I read Avocado I think of guacamolli and I don't like that. Maybe I will have to branch out and try. There is a girl that was in my sons young 5 class last year that would sit and eat an avocado with a spoon right out of the shell!!!! I was IMPRESSED.

I have a muffin recipe that subs avocado for butter or oil. Avocado is excellent in baked goods if they're dark or if the green color won't matter. (The muffins I make are lime-flavored, and I've done it with citrus-flavored cookies, too.) It's still not "healthy" because of the sugar, but it adds fiber, vitamins, and healthy fat to what would otherwise be complete junk food.
I love avocados and use them a lot. I still use butter, but do substitute it for my mayo

I haven't tried it, but it sounds like a great idea.

I generally prefer (grass-fed cow) butter for it's balanced omega 6:omega 3 ratio (nearly 1:1) over avocado's very high omega 6: omega 3 ratio (nearly 17:1).

For a long time now I have used avocados as a substitute for butter and mayo on my bread or in my tuna fish. I was wondering if anybody else does this or has any other suggestions for good substitutes I could try.
