Holy Avocados, Batman!!!

Avocados are considered a superfood these days.

They are a pretty mighty little fruit when you eat them.

I love avocados on salads, on sandwiches, with mexican food and now just recently have learned they are great in a smoothie! Recipes for smoothies here.

From Mercola.com: Avocados can protect you from liver damage. Rats who were fed avocados during a study and injected with a substance that causes liver damage were reported to have the least amount of damage as compared to rats fed other fruits.

Avocados are a great source of good fats in your diet. They have anti-inflammatory properties, promote heart health, and have more than twice the potassium than a banana.

Avocados are also great for your beauty regimen. Put cut pieces on your eyes for puffy eyes or make an eye cream. Use it as a facial mask. Use it on your hands to make them smooth. Use it on your hair as a deep conditioner.

So next time you are thinking about that plate of fajitas or fixing a smoothie – maybe you can throw in some avocados!
