For the love of Avocado

i looooove me some avocados! on salad, on tacos, on toast, in smoothies, on chips, and pretty much on every sandwich i eat. i can’t seem to get enough! which is not a bad thing at all – avocados are super healthy for you! this avocado post is sponsored by Hass Avocado but all opinions are my own.

The coolest Avocado Kitchen Tool ever!

first off. if you are an avid avocado consumer like me – then you need this tool. its the coolest! one swipe through and it makes perfect slices of avocado for everything!  this Avocado Slicer is my fav! did you see my avocado recipe round up? or my avocado smoothie? or the texas caviar? yeah… i’m a bit obsessed! but its a good thing!

did you know that avocados have naturally good monounsaturated fats that are part of a healthy diet? and that fresh avocados are cholesterol free? one ounce (most avocados are about 5 oz) contains 8% of your dv fiber, 4% dv of your potassium,  less than 1 g of sugar, only 50 calories but packed with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients! it is great for kids and babies because of its smooth creamy consistency. it is great for adults – even those on sensible diets watching what they eat! and not to mention it is SO. DANG. GOOD!

    Yum!!!! Avocados are our FAVORITE!!! That video was Hilarious.. Favorite Part definitely has to be when the host explains ” I am a Vegetarian” The Little Boy responds “You only eat Candy?” Absolutely… I learned I better to go to sleep “Or else I might die” :) My kiddos loved watching it with me too.

  8. the little boy at the end, “everyone has a choice”. No truer words!

    I like the part of the video when the the boy and girl were told what a vegetarian was and that vegetarians do not eat meat; the look on the children’s faces where hilarious. The girl says, “I don’t get it.” :)

    I love it when she asked where dairy comes from and the little boy said Dairy Queen. It’s also cute how he said avacodos (“atocotos”)
