Avocado Extravaganza!

Avocados are high in mono-saturated fat which improve cardiovascular health as well as help regulate blood sugar levels. Corey and I always whip up a bowl of fresh guacamole when we have guests over because it is so healthy and everybody loves it! I also make avocado pudding all the time as a healthy way to satisfy my sweet tooth. I was lucky enough to receive this package from California Avocados Direct.com



  • 3 ripe avocados (ripe means it is a little squishy to the touch)
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes; chopped
  • 1/4 onion; chopped
  • 1/4 of a bunch of cilantro; diced
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • Cayenne pepper and sea salt to taste

Just for you all, the great folks at California Avocados direct are offering 25% off for the next 48 hrs if you enter the promotional code “Jessica”. This makes an awesome gift for someone or for yourself! Click here to check out the website.

    oodles and oodles of avocados! yummmm. I recently started loving them. I love them in salads but even more in sandwiches, they make them seem so decadent but it’s actually packed with healthy fats!

  4. Avocados are definitely a fav of mine. I have to try and make my own guac one of these days, not sure why I haven’t yet.

    • It is soooo much better than the store bought kind! And it’s super easy. Our guests have come to expect it as a staple appetizer at our house ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Yes avocados are the best and I like them many ways. I’m from NM and here is where to find all the avocado goodies. I’ve also found in stores here a good guacamole in the cooler section at the grocery stores, especially at Costco. Live it up on avocados!!

  5. I’m going to ran on your avocado parade. I recently learned that I have a food sensitivity to avocados and the last experience I had made me never want to see them again! Alas since avocados are so healthy the blog world is bursting with them! I’ll live as long as no one sneaks me any:)

  6. I’m a huge avocado lover! So cool that you got these all the way from Cali! My fave way to use avocado is either in guac or on a sandwich!
