I now like avocados.
I have spent most of my life disliking avocados. So much that dislike avocados was part of my identity. I remember growing up and my sister had the audacity to say that she didn’t like avocados. My sister saying that made me
upset, because I was the one who didn’t like avocados. I remember her eating them with glee with my Grandpa when we were younger.
I didn’t like anything about avocados. I didn’t like the taste. I didn’t like the smell. I didn’t like texture. I hated guacamole. One of the saddest things that could happen was ordering Nachos or a burrito and forgetting to say, “no guacamole.” It is so hard to scrape all the guacamole off nachos. It is impossible with a burrito.
My dislike of avocados changed just under a year ago. I was working on being healthy and I was looking for foods that I could eat. In the eating lifestyles that I want to take a part in, all of them mention the fact that avocados are a healthy fat.
Looking up the health information of avocados I could see the benefit of eating them.
Here are a few as reported by http://undergroundhealthreporter.com/avocado-health-benefits#axzz2IgHj6Hg
The avocado, also called the alligator pear, is a high-fiber, sodium- and cholesterol-free food that provides nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, is rich in healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (such as omega-3 fatty acids), vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate) — as well as potassium.
Think about your life. When you go through your day ask, “Does this serve me?” If it doesn’t change. If it does, keep on going.
