Alright I will be honest, I did not know anything about avocado a few years back. I don’t even remember memorizing it in school exams or having it in the school books. Poor Memory may be!!!  OR it was not really the talked about fruit in my hometown. In this digital era, suddenly after so many years a fruit is talked about a lot. Talked about and HOW!!!

I call it a CELEBRITY FRUIT!!! Avocado is the IN THING within the health enthusiast community and even kids love to eat it.  Did you know that it is called the “ALLIGATOR PEAR”? Looks pretty ALLIGATORY to me!

One day my son came from school and started to tell me, “Mom I want to eat an avocado sandwich”. I asked him “where did you eat avocado sandwich?”, because I dint prefer eating avocados and hence did not buy them. He said “Mom today’s LUNCH was avocado sandwich in school. After that day, avocado is a regular guest in my house. Also, this sandwich recipe has become one of my famous recipes at home, which everyone loves.

Avocado is originated from Mexico and has all sorts of health, skin and hair benefits. It is packed with Vitamin B, K, E, C and Potassium. It is also used in cosmetic products, soaps, cooking and salads.

Note: A word of caution to PET OWNERS—-Although Avocado is amazing for humans, but American Society for the Prevention of cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has documented this as a harmful fruit for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and even horses.

If you want to get the full benefits of avocado, you can use an avocado cooking oil and incorporate this into your daily cooking (BUY HERE- BLACK & GREEN EXTRA VIRGIN, COLD PRESSED, MULTIPURPOSE AVOCADO COOKING OIL – )
