Dr Russ Blog - Go Avocado!
Go Avocado!
Created on 7/8/2014

It's green!

It's good!

Its - an avocado?

Yes - the humble avocado is experiencing a renaissance of sorts.

Most people enjoy guacamole, which is of course made with avocado, but finding other ways to use avocado might escape many of us.

How about:

- adding avocado to your salad?

- placing it on a sandwich?

- spreading it on crackers or bread?

- including it in your burrito?

Besides tasting really good, avocado can be really good for us - it's a nice source of both fiber and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Just one word of caution - avocados are relatively high in calories, so enjoy them in moderation.

Avocados - another healthy way to go green!
Be well.
