Easy Avocado Rice Recipe

This week’s #InstaWeanTeam challenge ingredient is: AVOCADO! I loooove avocados. Sweet or savory, this vegetable is so healthy and so delicious. 

Some facts about avocado:
– They lower bad cholesterol
– High in omega-3 fatty acids
– Rich in fiber
– They’re gluten free, dairy free, vegan, vegetarian and cholesterol-free

I have a really picky toddler who used to love avocados when it was introduced to him as his first food, but now, it’s really hard getting him to eat it by itself. So, I made it with rice. It’s easy, simple, healthy, and very yummy. A great way to “hide” the veggies. Also, this would make a great side to liven up taco night.
