Avocados

Because they are much less dense than nuts, avocados are always the better choice to round out meals. Forget about fat content. Avocados are a highly quick exit food and may be enjoyed fairly liberally. Use them to add creaminess to raw foods, or “beef” up a sandwich or salad for nutrition. Avocados combine beautifully with all veggies, grains, cooked starches or root veggies. Even with a baked sweet potato!
