Screw apples. No, really. Apples suck.
Hey, you know who can kiss my butt? People who like apples, that’s who!
That whole keeps-the-doctor-away thing? Utter BS. Probably propagated by doctors who want your business so they can lease yet another boring black BMW.
Okay, I could be exaggerating. A little. There’s nothing really wrong with apples. I just think that there’s another fruit that kicks the apple’s red-delicious ass: the avocado. (Yep, it’s technically a fruit.)
Full of good-for-ya monounsaturated fats, avocados lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while raising “good” HDL cholesterol… and that spells less heart disease, still the #1 killer out there. Monounsaturated fat has also been linked to reduced risk of cancer and diabetes.
Avocados are high in beta-sitosterol which is protective of the prostate, they’re chockfull of fiber, and even lutein rich, which is good for your eyes and the largest organ of your body. (That would be your skin, Ron Jeremy.)
In short, avocados make you look good nekid and help you to live a good long time. Here’s a way to eat them that you may not have tried:
[center] Avocado Dressing [/center]
2 avocados (a little soft is best)
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (organic if you can get it)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup of water
Pink sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Dice your avocado then toss everything into a food processor or your blender. Pulse until it’s smooth and creamy. Add more water if you prefer a thinner dressing.
I pour this over spinach salads, but it also makes a great topping for chicken, eggs, and naked redheads.
And remember, one bad apple spoils the bunch. But one bad avocado just increases the awesome.
