I {heart} Avocados

This is not the first time I have sung the avocado's praises here on the blog, nor will it be the last.  I didn't always like them, however.  When I was a kid I thought they were disgusting -- all mushy and green.  And what kind of name is guacamole for a food?!  To be fair, I had never tasted an avocado at that point.  I just thought I didn't like them.  Boy was I wrong.  I've spent the following years making ammends with the fruit I scorned for so long.  {That my be a little on the dramatic side. I just get excited.}

I serve avocados a lot here at my house now.   Guacamole is my go-to topping for any Mexican dish I serve {duh!}, but we also slice avocados up on turkey wraps and sandwiches or serve it mashed with a little lime juice, garlic salt and pepper on toast topped with turkey bacon for breakfast.  I like to eat that same mashed avocado-garlic salt-n-lime concoction with tortilla chips for a quick, light lunch.  And they're a yummy addition to smoothies and green drinks to give them a super creamy texture. 

 

If you love avocados like I do, Avocados from Mexico is giving you the opportunity to tell the world with their Share the Avocado Love Facebook app.  You can download ringtones, screensavers and wallpapers, as well as send virtual avocado gifts to your friends.  I grabbed the I love avocados badge for my blog side bar -- see it over there?  ------------------------------>

 

Maybe you wouldn't mind shouting your love of avocados from the rooftops of the real world, not just the online world.  You need to visit the Avocados from Mexico Cafe Press store and get yourself some cool "I love avocados" gear.  I'll be sporting this snazzy, comfy tee when I go to the gym:

You'll also find lots of other t-shirt designs, canvas grocery bags, mugs, and more! Tell me, what other fruit {or vegetable, for that matter} has their own product line?  Avocados are the coolest, right?!

 

On February 7th between 3:00 and 4:00pm EST there will be an #iloveavocados Twitter party with @guacgrl! Check it out for a good time and for great prizes such as gift cards and CafĂ© Press gift cards to buy I Love Avocados Gear – over $500 in prizes! Just follow @guacgrl or hashtag #iloveavocados to be a part of the fun!

If that looks good, come back tomorrow.  I'll be sharing a delicious recipe for Baked Nachos that you can use as an excuse to whip up a batch of guacamole.  As if you needed one.  Have a great day, friends!
