The 29 Healthiest Foods on the Planet

I think I'm going to try to eat through the list of The 29 Healthiest Foods on the Planet. Numero dos is avocados:

"The Power: Oleic acid, an unsaturated fat that helps lower overall cholesterol and raise levels of HDL, plus a good dose of fiber. One slice has 81 calories, 8 grams of fat and 3 grams of fiber. Try a few slices instead of mayonnaise to dress up your next burger."

I think I'm just going to put some on a turkey sandwich and see how I like it. I know that I love when restaurants put avocado on sandwiches, but who knows what else they add to that deliciously creamy spread. Depending on how that goes, I'll look up some other recipes to share!

eat it!
10:00 AM: 2 low fat Nutrigrain waffles with ICBINB, cinnamon, and sugar free syrup, 1/4 banana
12:30 PM: 1/2 a flatout with turkey, fat free cheddar, dijon, and... avocado! [which I've decided needs some additional flavor, so tomorrow I will find a recipe and whip it up] a handful of croutons, grapes, cherries
4:30 PM: 1/2 caesar salad, 1/2 smokey pepper jack turkey sandwich

drink it!

  1. Yes true. I think the motivation finally "hit me" & I think I'm going to be good. Well, at least I certainly hope so. A bad day every now & then is fine, but not day-after-day. That just leads to bad & unhealthy habits, obviously.

    But, thank you very much. You're always so helpful :)

    And, I agree. Avocados are so delicious. I love when I go out to eat and they are on my sandwich or salad.. mmm, heavenly! :)

  2. Very interesting! I don`t think I like avocados lol...not sure though.


  3. I loveeee avocado on sandwich's or burgers, trust me you won't miss the mayo at all! I usually like to put a little salt on my avocado though.

  4. Hmmmmm I absolutely LOVE avocados!!! Like the above commenter, I love them with just a touch of salt.

  5. I love Avocados. They are a great, healthy fat. I hope you are enjoying them!

  6. thanks. yeah, i found out my peanut butter addiction is also from lack of proteins & fats in my diet. So, I ned to get a boost on those. Maybe I'll buy some avocados? Nuts? I will find something :)
