avocado love

It was a slow processes, but one day it just clicked. Avocado is such a wonderful food!

It started as cubes in mexican dishes or slices in sushi, then I graduated to guacamole in tacos, burgers, burritos and as a dip, now it's come to a spread on bread! I'm hooked.

Not to mention how healthy they are! Packed with folate, vitamins E, C and B⁶, potassium and soluble fiber. They're also a source of heart healthy monounsaturated fat. (source)
