That’s not a typo. I really did write avocadodo. It’s what my son, Guy, says every time I ask him if he’d like to eat some avocado. He then continues to sing what he calls a blessing for the avocado. Guy happens to be a very enthusiastic kid, but he’s also right. The avocado is so good for us, it deserves a blessing.
Avocados are loaded with nutrients. They have the highest protein content of any fruit, more potassium than bananas, and they contain lutein, an antioxidant important for eye-health. Rich in vitamin E, vitamin C, and fiber, avocados are also high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. One small avocado has approximately 12 grams of carbohydrate.
Ideas -other than guacamole – for eating avocadodo: plain, with fresh lemon juice, in a salad, or in a sandwich.
