Go forth and eat chocolate avocados

File:CocoaPuffs.jpgI received this totally unsolicited advice this morning from my boxing club.  But I love avocados so I won't complain.  I am hoping they send me more info like this, I like to know that what I am eating can do things.  Like chocolate has endorphins.  I like that, cocoa puffs ARE good for you!

Super Foods for Super Health: #1 Avocados

Rich in good for you monounsaturated fats, avocados also contain phytonutrients like cholesterol-lowering beta-sitosterol and cancer-protective glutathione, along with vitamon E, folate, vitamin B6, and fiber. These creamy "vegetable fruits" contain more blood-pressure lowering potassium than bananas. (Enviromental Nutrition2006

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!  I live with an Air Force Vet and it is a wonderful feeling to know he has given back to his country in the most honorable way anyone can.  My brother and grandfather were Marines, my dad was Navy, my two uncles and father in law were Army, and Frank's brother was a career Army man.

So thanks to all our men and women who have served our country.  We would not be free like we are today without you!

  1. Well, I didn't buy Coco Puffs, but I did get a nice deal on avocados this morning. They do need to ripen up for a couple of days though.

    Happy Veteran's Day! Many thanks to all who serve.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
