Avocado Love

If you missed our Avocado classes this month, do not fear! The best part about our Eat Well classes is that we get to recipe test and truly find the best of the best when it comes to what tastes good. Some are excellent, and some are flops, but that’s just the kitchen days right? Part of the creative process and we have a gracious audience, so that helps. Here, we gathered the ‘best of the best’ or our ‘recipe-roundup’ of winning recipes from our month of celebrating these beautiful fruits!

Avocados are, of course, one of our favorites! A heart-healthy nutrient dense fruit with over 20 vitamins and minerals! They are, like most fruits, naturally low sodium and cholesterol free. We know them best for their fat content. Culturally, fat is a word that makes us run the other way, but these are the good fats! Good fats you say? Yes! The fats that help contribute to healthy skin, hair, nails and can actually help reduce your blood cholesterol levels. Fat is also good at satiating us, which is basically a fancy way of saying it helps to keep us full. Fats play an important role in the diet and are getting more attention than ever with the keto craze and low carb dieting.

So, as promised here are just a few of our favorite recipes we tested during avacodo month:
