Avocado From Every Angle


I’ve started eating better lately. For me that means being more mindful about what I eat and making smarter choices about how I’m fueling my body.

That has caused me to look at my food differently……carefully……simply noticing it more and enjoying the entire process. From the preparation to the savoring of each bite.

When I cut into the avocado this morning I knew it would be the subject of this week’s photo challenge.  I noticed the seed then the dark yellow-green center. The edges are darker green and the outer covering is knotty and black.  It’s beautiful!

I ate some of the avocado with my eggs this morning.  I sautéed some onions and red and yellow peppers in olive oil then added 2 eggs to the skillet.  Once the eggs were cooked I added grated cheddar cheese. I toasted a piece of multi-grain bread and that was my delicious and healthy breakfast.

My daughter and I finished the avocado for lunch. We mashed it, added a little salt and ate it with some whole wheat bread crisps.

    I LOVE avocados!!! And I so applaud you for being “intentional” about your dietary changes. I’ve done some revamping to ours over the years, and believe me, you’ll be glad when you’re older! I’ve also tried to look at it from a Biblical viewpoint, that are bodies are “the temple of the Holy Spirit, you are bought with a price, made His own; therefore, glorify God in your body.” (1 Cor.) Go girl!

    Beautiful photos, I love avacados especially when I am back in my native country where my sister has five avocado trees in her garden and they produce the most nice and beautiful avacados. However I do not eat a lot of them thinkingI will get fat. You seem to be suggesting that they are healthy what have missed? Do they not have a lot of callories?

      You’re right. They are high in fat and calories but it’s the good kind of fat. I could eat a whole one with my eggs but don’t because of the fat content. I indulge but I don’t over indulge.
