I remember when I was around 12 I learned about the three A’s for the first time: asparagus, artichokes, and avocados. I think I tried all three for the first time in the same year, and they’ve been favorites of mine ever since.

I’ve been on an Avocado kick since Sunday morning, when we went to CostCo and they were shamelessly pushing large, nearly ripe, fruit at us. There’s something so satisfying about the creamy goodness of an Avocado, whether you turn it into guacamole, slice it into a salad, add it to an omelet, or layer it on a sandwich.
So far this week, I’ve done three of those, and it’s only Tuesday.
The thing about Avocado is that when I eat them, I’m less “snacky” during the rest of the day, so yes, they’re a high-calorie fruit, but they’re still healthier than all those tasty-tasty sugary carbs that I love, but don’t love me.
On the California Avocado website, I saw mashed avocado on multi-grain toast, topped with a sunny-side-up egg.
Guess what I’m having for lunch tomorrow?
(Breakfast is a protein shake, because I don’t DO breakfast otherwise.)
A friend of mine (she’s a very health-conscious person) makes a cocoa mousse with avocado (whipped), organic cocoa, and honey or something else for sweetening. Such an intense flavor! One or two spoonsful is all you can eat, but heavenly while it lasts. My mouth is watering, just remembering….
