Avocado. I'm addicted. It's not just for guacamole. The beautiful avocado, and all her beautiful oil, is more than just an ingredient in guacamole. Don't get me wrong, I love guacamole. It's my favorite snack with my chips, for sure. Gluten free chips, of course. But there's so much more the avocado can do!
Ode to the avocado
Mayo & Dressing
Its oils can be used to make a healthier mayonnaise. I'm a hard core mayo lover, and switching from the brand I grew up to a new kind...let's just say, if it wasn't for the avocado element, I'd have snubbed the whole idea.
Then, to ask me to switch up my favorite greek dressing? Are you insane? Oh, it has avocado oil in it? Sure, I'll give it a try!
Why is mayo, and dressing healthier with avocado oil? No trans fats, only healthy fats. Great healthy fats, means less sugar has to be added to Primal Kitchen goodies. Kind of a fan.
Extra Virgin Oil
If you want to do a little stir fry, or perhaps, make your own dressing for your salad, there's always the straight up chance to purchase your own bottle of Avocado oil!
Sometimes, you have to spray a pan to prevent things getting stuck, YO. Pull out a healthier option with an avocado spray. No chemicals in that spray, either. Even better.
Gluten Free Chips
Who doesn't love some chips? I'm not the only one who loves to sit down with a big bag of chips. Salty, delicious, and gluten free (these days.) Snacking is a bit healthier with avocado oil, instead of those trans fat oils, am I right?
It's not just about food, though, for the green beast. It's for your hair, and skin, too.
There's nothing like having soft, manageable hair. At least in my house, there's nothing more amazing that having both my daughter's and my hair soft, and manageable. We don't carry off frizz all that well! Dried out, and fried hair isn't a good look on anyone, really.
Winter's coming, let the dry, cracked skin enter our worlds. Hell, no. Not if I can help it! If I'm feeling good about putting the oil into my body with the edible oil, why not put the moisturizing oil on my body! Sign me up for smooth skin all winter long.
The avocado, it's more than just for guacamole. Love it. Embrace it. Get all up in the oil from it! You'll thank me, I promise.
