It’s So Easy Eating Green: Love an Avocado Today

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Hass Avocado Board.

I’m not really sure what has happened in the past couple of years in my life to make me love green foods as much as I do now!  Maybe it’s looking at the color on the screen every day when I visit SEBG?  Probably not.  It definitely has to do with a greater understanding of just how much food and healthy food choices affect my body, energy level, and quality of life.

In addition to a new found love for Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, and Juicing Kale and Spinach comes another lovely green food that I just can’t seem to get enough of… Avocados!

Avocados 1

Honestly, my favorite way to eat an avocado is plain, well, with just a sprinkle of salt.  I love to spread it on crackers, tortillas, and even use it as a sandwich spread substitute!

I even blogged awhile back about mixing in some fresh avocado with jarred salsa – it’s a super easy and fast delicious snack!

Avocados aren’t only a Nutrient-Dense food, they are also full of Naturally Good Fats!  Over 75% of the fat in an avocado is unsaturated, making it a great substitute for foods high in saturated fats.  This makes it a great alternative for me for a yummy, feel-good-about-what-I’m-eating snack!

If you love avocados and are looking for more recipes or just ready to jump into a new food to you, check out the Love One Today site.  You’ll find lots of different avocado recipes, facts about avocado nutrition, and even tips on how to pick the right avocados and how to store them once you get them home!
