Going healthy with Avocado


Good afternoon everyone! I truly hope you’re having an amazing start of weekend! As for me I have been working for quite a few hours already, but it is worth as I have a very exciting plan coming up (that soon I will share with you!) and money will be needed!

This week I have “discovered” avocado! I know I am late to the party as avocado is quite known already. But let me be more specific, it was my first time trying and actually enjoying it! The first time it was given to me to try I had it like any fruit “oh give a bite and try this!” – I swear to never again put that in my month, I hated that flavor and texture! But now, after a while and “trauma”  is gone I decided to try it again after reading so many blogs where everyone recommends avocado as being such an healthy food! And surprise, surprise… I enjoyed it!! This week I had it in a lot of  different ways so here I leave you some ideas if you feel like trying it and if you already have it in your menu. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Note: An advise to safe avocado and avoid that it turns black once its open is to save it with its core 😉

Which one did you fancy the most? What’s your favorite avocado recipe? Comment below as I would love to get some ideas! 🙂

Have a lovely and healthy weekend everyone! 🙂

  1. I absolutely LOVE avocado. I usually just eat it by itself with lemon juice, salt and pepper on it or on a bagel with cream cheese however I made a recipe once with chicken, tomato, avocado and cheese melted on top… SO delicious.
