Twofer Thumbs Up for Avocados!

Avocado is for Babies

The Twofer have always loved avocados. It was a great first-food for many reasons:

it's portable and doesn't need to be warmed

It's got lots of 'good' fat for brain development plus other healthy vitamins and minerals

I don't mind eating the leftovers (only 50 calories per ounce plus sodium and cholesterol free!)

It was also the very first 3-syllable word the girls could say at nearly 1 year of age. (I swear, ask Grandma! She was there!) They pronounced it: ah-bo-ba-doh

Avocado for Bigger Kids

As the girls have grown they continue to enjoy avocado in guacamole, in salad, and on sandwiches.

One of our family favorites is chicken salad with Old Bay Seasoning (very Maryland) and served with slices of tomato and avocado. The saltiness of Old Bay pairs beautifully with a creamy avocado and a juicy tomato.

Old Bay Seasoning isn't just for crabs you know. You can use it with steamed shrimp, on french fries, and in tuna salad too. Here's our recipe for chicken salad with Old Bay to be served with tomato and avocado:

1-2 cups of cooked chicken (boiled, leftover from the grill, rotisserie, or canned)

1/4 cup of chopped celery

1/4 cup of mayo (or to taste)

1 tsp of Old Bay

1/4 tsp pepper

1 hard boiled egg chopped (optional)

Review: The Real Food Project via Hellmann's and Bobby Flay

Do you find it difficult to get your family to eat real, homemade, good-for-you food?

For many families mealtime is a break in a very busy day filled with work, school, and activities. Processed foods are readily available and affordable. But real food really is no more expensive or difficult to make!

This is where The Real Food Project comes in.

Bobby Flay has teamed up with Hellmann's to offer a variety of recipes that make it easier for families to create real food they will love. You can find the recipes and watch the videos, and join in the discussion on Facebook.

How about this recipe for roasted mushrooms and shaved celery with creamy lemon vinaigrette?

Or this one for catfish and black-eyed pea salsa?

As someone who has always loved Hellmann's I can't wait to try some of the recipes. Which ones will you try?
