Could it be?
Is it true?
Is Sparkpeople getting over its irrational fear of fat calories?
Judging by its slideshow of funky avocado recipes, it just might be.
Now, I'm not sure about vegan pizza or the buttermilk in that chilled soup recipe, and I'm not real keen on hummus as it is, but the fact that Spark is supporting avocados out loud makes me happy. I'd like to see them less scared of eating more than a quarter of one, but it's a start.
And the salad dressing? "You'll better absorb the nutrients in salad if you drizzle them with a little fat"?
YES! THANK YOU! The Romans didn't dress their salads liberally with olive oil for nothing, you know.
Now if we can get them to stop recommending a "moderate" 150+ g of carbohydrates to diabetics, we'll be golden. Seriously, folks... moderation in all things is NOT the answer for diabetics. Diabetes and other conditions require stripping away unnecessary demands on an already-broken system in order to fix it!
Ever tried to fix a table saw with the blade running?
