Avocados! Love them? Hate them?

Woman China Woman China
As a child my mother use to yell at me for wanting them because they were so fattening. Now? She is the one who rubs it in that she can buy them at the store and I cannot.

And avocados are part of the reason I am going back to Mexico for two months next year. I eat one a day... I peel it and if it makes it where it is supposed to be great! But usually, it just makes it to my mouth.

LOL! Same here, it also makes a great butter substitute on crackers or toast.

I could not agree more with your choices. I would add huevos rancheros, omelettes, plus a chilled halved avocado which is filled with cold shrimp and cocktail sauce.

They're so nutrient dense. Sometimes I'll have one with some soy sauce for a snack.

When I was young I didn't care for them, but now I love them.

Love them, plain sliced with a sprinkle of sal, or maybe on a salad. They're too precious to mix in recipes.

One of my favorite foods, ever!

Once, all I craved was avocados and it turned out I had low iron. When that was fixed, I went back to just eating them like I normally do. But when I craved them, I was eating two a day and not much else!

Love them! They are so good for you too! Wish I could grow them. Looked into it and it's very complicated it seems. Plus you have to have warm weather year round.

I love them in the sweeter Asian preparations(Avacado shake!) but they are hit-or-miss to me in Mexican cuisine.
