avocado

Motivated to paint something fresh each day as part of my May challenge, I am also dedicated to eat more whole foods and eat fresh.  Avocado is one food that I love.
Have you ever heard that the avocado is referred to as God's butter?  
Well last summer, at the beach, I overheard a Mother giving a spoon full to her child and telling him it was 
"God's butter."
Avocado's are a "superfood" and so good for you.  
Great alone with a little salt and honey drizzled on top or added to salads or fresh smoothies.  
I love how they come packaged in a pretty green bowl.

God's butter - i love it! i enjoy my avocados with just lemon with a little salt, or lemon with just bit of soy sauce (believe or not it's good), and toss them with fresh greens ;)

Your painting just made me want to run out and buy some yummy avocados to eat this weekend!

Happy Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo - weekends in May are such fun!

When we did our spring cleanse, we learned that avocados add a creaminess to smoothies and now we're addicted. We use them mashed on sandwiches, sprinkled in our salads and now for breakfast smoothies. Truly God's butter! Hope you have a wonderful Kentucky Derby weekend.

I never heard that term to describe avocados! It's perfect and so is your art.

Yum!. I eat avocado almost every day (it's a California thing). This year's crop has been spectacular. Have a wonderful week-end creating. xoxo

I just love avocados but I have never had one with honey. I will have to try that soon!
