This is a post about how much I love avocados + a giveaway + an awesome recipe which has been sponsored by Hass Avocados. All opinions are my own. Thanks so much for supporting my blog and its sponsors.
Can I just tell you how much I love avocados? They are one of my favorite foods of all time! They are creamy and they are heart healthy. My kids love an avocado halve with a little salt and pepper and a spoon…super easy snack and they are pleased as punch (not sure if I’ve ever used that phrase before in my life…). Lately, my husband and I are totally addicted to making pick de gallo with cubed avocados. In fact, we use it on top of salads instead of salad dressing. It’s ultra healthy but gives the salad so much flavor…I don’t even miss the dressing. Avocados contain good fats which are an important part of a nutritious diet. I find that substituting avocado often replaces foods that would contain saturated fats. For example, using avocado in the place of mayonnaise or cheese on a sandwich…Keeps the creamy flavor without saturated fat–Hooray! By using Hass Avocados in your cooking you can “love one today” because of the benefits that avocados can provide–they have naturally good fats and are cholesterol free! Check out my avocado pinterest board–yep, it’s official, I’m totally obsessed.

I developed a recipe using Hass Avocados that I absoulely loved! It’s a slow cooker casserole with quinoa, the chipotle pork from yesterday, and pico de gallo with avocados. It was a huge winner at my house and is totally heart healthy. When you think of casseroles you probably think of cream of something soups, butter and a pound of cheese (that is probably processed). Not with this casserole! It’s totally good for your heart and your tastebuds. You’re going to love it 🙂
