Today's post is dedicated to my favorite food.  When you think avocado, you might think of guacamole.  Guacamole is delicious, especially when it's my personal recipe.
(ingredients: cream cheese, avocado, garlic salt, lime juice, diced roma tomato)

However, avocados really don't need to be made into guacamole.  They are delicious on their own.  I have been known to cut an avocado in half and use a spoon to dig the fruit right out of the skin and into my mouth.  Plain.  No salt, no lime juice, no tomato.  Just pure, delicious, avocado.  Sometimes I spread it on my homemade bread.  Sometimes I scoop it out of the skin with a corn chip.  Sometimes I dice it up on a salad, or in my pasta dish.  Sometimes I use it as a sandwich spread.  I even made avocado bread one time.  (although, I will admit, it just tasted like...bread.) Sooooo many delicious choices. 

And besides tasting good...avocados are a great source of potassium.  And, as a runner, I can always use more potassium. :)

in a pasta dish (this one is my "chicken-avocado-pasta delight"
(also very good with shrimp pasta)

 on top of a salad (spinach, carrot, tomato, avocado)

or, tonights avocado-preparation of choice: on top of tortilla chips w/fresh diced tomato
