Would This Body Lie....
I remember the Angie Dickinson billboards all over town in the 70's, with her avocado speared, asking if we thought she'd lie. I would love to see those again rather than all the ads for junk food, cell phones and "gentlemen's clubs".
Avocados have been my favorite food since childhood, even though I was allergic to them as a kid (my lips swelled three times their size)!! I love them in sandwiches, in chilled brown rice with cherry tomatoes, as guacamole, even all by itself with a sprinkling of Himalayan salt. You can flavor a rice bowl Asian or Mexican with salsa and cilantro or toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds, oh so versatile. A delicious and healthy snack. Wrap it up in a toasted nori sheet and dip into some wasabi. My favorite pregnancy food was avocado and grapefruit with a little juice squeezed for dressing. The best foods are the simplest.
