Avocados might be one of nature's most perfect foods. We know, we know — you don't want to read anything more about avocado toast. There's so much more the avocado can be used for!
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner ( and yes, even dessert) all have a spot for avocado on the menu. Creamy and mildly flavored, the avocado adds healthy fats to your meal, so you can feel good about your current obsession.
Avocados also help take the edge off those spicier dishes, which is why we love using them in Tex-Mex and other spice-heavy meals. It's why every Taco Tuesday should include a big bowl of guac.
