Do you eat avocados? I’ll admit, aside from guacamole, I hadn’t given much thought to the marvelous little fruit until recently. In the last year or so I’ve broken out of my shell and tried avocados in a few different dishes, including a fabulous tropical salad I’ll be sharing with you soon! I’ve seen avocado recipes popping up all over the food blogs I love too.
So when Avocados from Mexico said they were running a giveaway and wanted me to share it with all of you I had no problem with that. Everyone should try avocados at one time or another, and those that already love “nature’s butter” entering this giveaway is a given!
If you hadn’t though about it before, avocados can provide a simple and quick way to power up breakfast and make it distinctly delicious. You can easily spread fresh avocado on toast with a dash of salt and pepper, or just dice into egg wraps or blend into smoothies.
IMPORTANT NOTE about the giveaway. Comments on this post do not count toward entry. You must follow the instructions below. Good luck!
