A confession

You guys!

I've missed you! It wasn't planned, but this little blogging break has been good for me. I never, ever want to give you a post for a post's sake. I feel refreshed and ready to get back to sharing with all of you!

First, I have a confession...

I don't like avocados.

I know! I'm weird! Trust me, I've heard it. They just gross me out! Too much....smoosh. Ick!

However, I do know how good they are for me. All those vitamins, good fats and omega 3s are too good to pass up! So I've been trying to find a way to sneak avocados into my diet. Let me tell you, it's going to take some serious sneaking!

My first thought was baked goods. It's pretty easy to sneak things into a muffin, right? Especially when that muffin has chocolate in it, too!

These healthy whole wheat chocolate avocado muffins from She Bakes Here look amazing! They're full of all sorts of goodies!

Chocolate and raspberry is my all time favorite combination, so these chocolate raspberry avocado muffins from Free Range Living are definitely going to be tried!

Ok, so muffins are a good option, but what else can I try?

How about salad dressing? Maybe if the avocado is mixed with enough stuff I won't notice it?

I'm a huge fan of taco salad, so this one from Gina Miracle looks pretty good.

And I think this southwestern pasta salad from Two Peas and Their Pod looks yummy, too!

When it doubt, just throw it in a smoothie, right? Something with lots of berries like this one from DrinksHome.

So, why all the sudden interest in avocados and their nutritional benefits?

Well, it's all because of this little avocado...
Yep, that's right! Baby number 2 is on the way! We're excitedly awaiting their arrival in mid-November!

Be blessed, I know we are!
