Best Fruit EVER!!

Want a power breakfast, lunch or supper or even a snack?  What has every essential vitamin and mineral in it? What fruit is probably one of the BEST first foods for a baby not to mention the cheapest? An avacado!! I love avacados for everything that I can possible use them for.  For both of my sons, they were their first foods and they mix so well with other foods.  Avacados are also probably one of the easiest foods to peel and cut.  When you buy an avacado and want to use it right away, make sure it's somewhat soft when you pick it out at the store, otherwise you won't be able to do anything with it.  If you know you won't need it for awhile you can pick a harder one and keep it on your counter, or if you want it to ripen slower, in the refigerator.  To peel an avacado, simply cut it in half with a knife and seperate the halves.  Then with the knife cut slices in the avacado and, if desired, cut them in small diced cubes.  Then take a spoon and scoop it out of the skin. Avacado is good with salt if you want a little extra flavor.  It's also great just all on it's own.  It can be mashed up for a chip dip and even seasoned for guacamole dip.  It goes great on sandwiches, tacos, salads, burgers, chicken, the list is endless!!
