Share the Avocado Love
It wasn’t until I became a young adult that I developed a love for avocados. I don’t think I necessarily disliked the fruit when I was a child; I just think they weren’t around as much. Perhaps it was just my household, but I really don’t recall seeing them on the counter, or having them with my meals. Now that I cook for my own family, I can’t live without them! Luckily avocados are a fruit, which helps me feel less guilty about eating them. Sometimes I feel badly about consuming the fat they contain, but I am reminded that avocados contain some of the healthiest fats out there! It is important to partake of the right kinds of fat.
I love adding avocado to my hambugers, sandwiches, tacos, eggs and much more. I love how much flavor and goodness just a couple of slices can add to many dishes. If I’m feeling a little more adventurous, or like I have more time, I will even chop some up and make a salsa or guacamole. YUM!
This February you can take advantage of the Share the Avocado Love Facebook app. Share your passion for avocados by sending friends and family virtual gifts, downloading ringtones, wallpapers and blogger badges, or purchasing t-shirts and gear from Avocados from Mexico. I was just browsing through the virtual gifts and decided to send a friend a Yummy Diamond. Avocados AND diamonds? Yes please! lol
Don’t be fooled into thinking that all of the avocado fun is virtual! Check out the Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store, and browse the NEW 2013 I Love Avocados Clothing and Gear Store. I was given a gift card to do a little shopping and purchased this cute I Love Avocados Reusable Shopping Bag. It hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, but my order is being processed as we speak! I sure love my reusable shopping bags!
Have fun this month by eating avocados and sharing the love! YUM!
