Yes, I've tried them before. Turned up my Southern nose every time.
But in the last six months I've started getting a taste for them after one day deciding to give them one more try. I read about all the good things in avocados. Yes, I know they have a fairly high fat content, but it's almost all the "good" monounsaturated fat. Good for your heart (and your skin). Just glowing, dahling.
So, I've been playing around with avocados. Sorry, hubby. Had to be done.
Here's my new healthy lunch when I'm feeling EXTREMELY, BEARISHLY hungry and just need to be full.
Peel, pit and mash one avocado. One is all you need - you'll have leftovers.
http://www.hemphearts.com/ They also are available at some health food stores, if you have one nearby. Hemp seeds give my "Avocado Surprise" recipe some texture and stick-to-your ribs bulk.
Next, I chop and add fresh tomatoes.
I like to eat this mixture with organic blue corn tortilla chips or lime flavored tortilla chips. Either way, I promise you will not be hungry before dinner. I can manage to only eat half. It will save OK for about one day, but after that, the avocado turns a little brownish. So...share it with your friends right away.
To good health and happy eating,
