Ok, YES! Avocados are a major part of my diet!!! Yes! I eat them everyday!!! Avocados are the best kind of fat you can eat!! That's right! They are a "good" fat!!! And, just to throw it out there, avocados happen to have more potassium than bananas!!! What about that?!?!
Now, moving on....now, that I have convinced you that avocados are actually good for you to eat (oh, and I know I have), let's talk about how to eat them. First, avocados should be dark in color, kinda black looking.... then they are ripe enough to eat. At this point, they will be soft in texture. Second, avocados are great to add to many foods/dishes. Now, some people may eat avocados straight, however, I believe most people do not tend to like them this way. I usually have avocados added to my salads or sandwiches. You can make a spread for sandwiches as well instead of using Mayo...... however, this spread should have fresh squeezed lemon and a dash of salt added.
Why am I talking about avocados out of all other kinds of foods?!?! Well, recently I have gotten many questions about how to eat them from friends and family...... my mom, in fact, called to tell me that she had 10 avocados for me... she said that she tried them and did not know what it was that I liked about them..... I had to explain to her that avocados are best when added to something...... seriously, avocados spice up many things! Pinterest is full of avocados uses and recipes!!! Just like the one below.... definitely on my try list!!!! Click here to see recipe :D
Accessories for cooler weather!!!
Cooler weather has arrived here in South Georgia!!!! And, these Oiselle gloves and headband/ear warmer arrived today in the mail!!!!! Oh, I can't wait to try!!!! The gloves I currently wear are cheap ones from target....... which are great for every day wear, but not for running!!! Cold air cuts right through them! So, I can't wait to try these gloves out!!! Of course, it may be the weekend before I can try them out, since my week day runs are on the treadmill. As for the Headband/ear warmer, I do hope it is a bit better fit than the one I currently use. Although the one I use is great for keeping my ears warm, when I take it off, I have an indent across my forehead for a couple hours when I take it off!!!!! Seriously, I got strange looks in the grocery store couple weekends back ..... everyone was looking at my forehead! LOL! :D
Now, do I consider buying the Oiselle running vest that I have been eye-balling?!?! hmmmmm.... decisions! decisions! Kara Goucher recommends it too!! :D
Well, gotta run........ UNTIL LATER!.............
