Try A Different Side - Avocados
So lately, I am loving avocados! I never was a really big fan of eating them as is (not as guacamole) until I was pregnant with baby #3. Plus, Aldi has been having amazing sales on them. I just picked them up a couple of weeks ago, three of them for 99 cents! Can't beat that deal.
Did you know that most of the fat in avocados is monounsaturated fat, the same heart-healthy kind found in olive oil and macadamia nut oil? Even more important, the fat from an avocado isn't likely to stick to your hips, because the fruit is packed with fiber! Research shows that high-fiber foods can help keep you healthy in a number of ways, including aiding in digestion and improving heart health.
So why not try a different (refreshing) side for dinner like an avocado!
