Happy Sunday beautiful people!!
I’m going to get right to the point. Do I have any avocado fans out there??
If so, you’re going to love this recipe. If not, how do you not like avocados?!?!
I mean look at this creamy, gorgeous, happy little fruit just waiting to be eaten.
Not only are avocados beautiful and delicious but they are LOADED with vitamins and nutrients that give you that healthy glow. People might ask, “are you pregnant?!” and you can just say, “nah, I’m just eating good.”
Here are some more avo benefits:
- More potassium than a banana
- loaded with heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids
- tons fo fiber
- can lower cholesterol
- the fats in avocado can help you absorbs nutrients from other foods
Are you convinced yet? If not, you might be after you try this recipe for avocado hummus. Imagine if guacamole and hummus had a baby and BAM. What makes it even better is using Foster’s Pickled Veggies to dip. The spiciness gives it a little zing and takes the whole experience over the top.
Their pickled asparagus is my favorite!!
