    Do you eat avocados?

    Avocados are very popular. Here in Puerto Rico, most people like to eat a slice of avocado with their food.
    Growing up, there were a couple avocado trees at my parents house (in fact, there still are), but the only one who ate avocado was my dad. He loves them.

    Still to this day my dad give away about a hundred avocados every year. People love them. They are so big and pretty.

    But I have never like them.

    Do you like avocado?

    (The picture shows some of my dad avocados this year.)

    I love avocados! I buy several every shopping trip, and use them in salads and sandwiches.

    This is one of the best fruits ever. Even better if you make some palta ice cream with a squirt of lome juice.....and no cream. all the creaminess is in the fruit. you would be amazed at how good it is.
    Everyone should get eating them.

    I love avocados and eat them every chance I get.  We make guacamole, slice them for sandwiches, put chunks of them in salads, and just eat them cubed with salt and pepper, accompanied by saltine crackers.

    Yes, I love avocados, it's the most nutritious fruit we ever have. My father has about 2 or three  avocado trees in the backyard. We have loads of them we keep giving them away to friends and neighbours.

    Love them! Just last week, a neighbor gave me two from a batch he had brought from his farm while we were on the elevator.

    Love this healthy food! A favorite way is to replace half the mayo for chicken salad with mashed avocado.  It tends to make my skin very oily so I must limit intake, however.

    Avocados are wonderful!! I love them mashed in guacamole, sliced on sandwiches and in salads. They are great mixed w/ citrus fruits like grapefruit. Try stuffing them w/ shrimp salad. I also chop them w/ pineapple, mango, hot pepper, and lime juice as a salsa for grilled fish. They are rich in omega-3 fats and antioxidants that are good for the heart and overall wellness. Love them!

    My family really enjoys avocados, I just bought some today to put in our salad. Your dad's ones look lovely and it's so nice he shares them.

    I love avocados too... eat them regularly with other foods. I also like to just cut in half and squeeze lime or lemon juice in the center, sprinkle with a little salt, and eat with a spoon. Tastes delicious!
