8 Summer Superfoods You Should Be Eating


One of my favorite ways to enjoy this nutrient-rich superfruit (yes, it’s technically a fruit) is sliced, drizzled with lime juice, and sprinkled with a touch of coarse sea salt (skip salt and stick with ground black pepper, if you have high blood pressure). You can even use avocado in place of mayonnaise in chicken, tuna, and egg salad, or as a topping for turkey burgers and sliced over a refreshing summer salad. And although avocado is best known for its huge load of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, it should also get kudos for packing an amazing 14 grams of fiber in each pear-shaped fruit. Give this chilly Avocado Ice Pop a try.
