The Internet's Best Avocado Recipes

Avocado recipes are never in short supply around here and that's because this versatile fruit is so good for you, and so easy to use in healthy meal preps! Here are some of the best!

We love avocados and bet you do, too. Avocado recipes are always appreciated because they're one of those foods that seem to have a short window of awesomeness. When you slice it open and find that it's absolutely perfect, it's so rewarding. And then other times, of course, it plays tricks on you—it looks perfect but cutting it open reveals brown spots. Or maybe it somehow spoils faster than you can use it. That magical sweet spot of perfect avocado-ness can be elusive!  Nevertheless, we love them, they're super good for us, and they're awesome in meal prep recipes.
