Green Magic

It makes me sad that avocados get a bad wrap for being unhealthy. The truth is "the avocado can be a helpful part of a successful weight-management program." It is loaded with healthy fats (nothing like the kind that make our french fries crispy) and "its rich supply of vitamins and minerals also makes the diet more wholesome and satisfying and thus more conducive to overall health." Not to mention, they are darn tasty.
Next time you see yourself reaching for the mayonnaise to spread on that turkey sandwich, grab an avocado instead. Your heart, waist, and taste buds will thank you.
