Did you know?

Pain Reducing Avocados:  A cholesterol lowering monounsaturated fat food that helps keep your body strong and pain free.  University of Buffalo researchers found that competitive women runners who ate less than 20% fat were more likely to suffer injuries than those who consumed at least 31%. Extreme low-fat diets are known to weaken muscles and joints.

Try this Avocado Dip recipe which I found on, where you will find loads of yummy dishes.

Avocado Dip recipe
1 large avocado
1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped.
1 green chili, chopped.
2 ½ oz of unflavored fromage frais.
3 tablespoons of fresh coriander leaves.
1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
½ teaspoon of salt.
¼ teaspoon of ground cumin.

Slice avocado into two lengthways and remove the stone. Scoop out the flesh and put into a food processor with all other ingredients except the cumin. Blend well.

Move the dip into to its serving dish and sprinkle the cumin over top.
