Our favorite snack in the whole wide world might be sliced avocado on toast. You could say we are an addict.
But Dr. Oz told us to eat more avocados, so we had to listen to this very rough prescription. Obviously. If an avocado a day keeps the doctor away, we’re down. There are so many sexy health benefits to the green goddess. Tons of vitamin E, potassium, fiber and healthy fats to name a few .
