Tasty 2 Ingredient Snack!

Try plain avocado slices on Low-Fat Triscuits. This is a very SATISFYING snack. We often have it while waiting on dinner to be ready in the evening.  Try this HEALTHY FAT today!  Ever wonder why and which fat is healthy?

My kids even love the avocado in scoops without any crackers! They'll each eat half an avocado in a few quick minutes. It's awesome brain-food and it's easy and delicious too!

When you're BUYING an avocado, be sure that it's nice and firm. Let it sit out in your kitchen for a few days, so it softens and gives slightly to gentle pressure.

Once it is ripe, you can EAT IT or put it in the REFRIGERATOR until you are ready to eat it -- this is a trick to prevent further ripening. They'll stay perfect for up to two weeks! Avocados are too expensive to be throwing away!

Also, you'll want to prepare it just before you eat it, as it does quickly become oxidized upon being cut. Enjoy!

Here is another snack to enjoy: hummus and cucumber on toast!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? TELL ME IN A COMMENT: Do you like avocado? What is your favorite way to eat it? If you ever didn't like it, what was it that changed your mind? Did you have it as a kid? I never tried it until I was out of college! Boy, was I missing out!
