I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to see their baby endure chemo. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to wear a paper hospital gown just to touch their baby. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who did not get to bring their baby home. I run in memory of my youngest son and cherish everyday with my oldest one. Join me in my adventures through motherhood, family life, and the challenges of being a 30-something athlete.

My newest obsession: Avocado!
Yup....I have recently become totally obsessed with Avocado! I love them!
On Friday I made homemade guacamole, simple ingredients and super good!
Today I made breakfast burritos with eggs, bacon, pepper jack cheese, salsa, and sliced avocado....they were awesome.
Avocado's aren't exactly super foods but they are low in sodium, low in saturated fat, and cholesterol free.
There creamy texture allows you to use them in place of sour cream....which makes them a healthier option.
More tidbits on the avocado....
How to Select
Choose avocados with firm skin and no soft spots, firm but yielding to gentle pressure when ripe.
How to Store
Store unripe avocados in paper bag at room temperature. Refrigerate when ripe for 2-3 days.
