No, I'm not, but I'm going to start including Avocado, DAILY, small amount because of the calories and good fats. I actually LOVE avocado! Especially on a whole wheat bread (35 calories per slice). I do eat it in my wonderful black bean salad. YUMMY!
BLACK BEAN SALAD
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained 1 can whole-corn, rinsed and drained 5 (or more) tomatoes, chopped green onion, chopped AVOCADO, small, chopped Olive oil Salt and pepper Lemon (or lime) juice
Mmmmmm So colorful!
I'll celebrate 13 years of maintenance on July 2nd, 2017!
There's a reason these green fruits are called butter-fruit in Mexico - they mash up into the same creamy texture as butter. Try them in soups as a thickening agent, and in mashed potatoes to provide a creamier texture as well as an added taste treat. Interestingly, avocadoes and olives are the only two fruits high in fat - yet both are rich in heart - healthy monounsaturated fat.
