The avocado is a nutrition knockout. It’s packed full of healthy fats, fiber, and vitamins. It makes an excellent addition to just about any meal, and it’s the perfect way to round out snacks so they’re extra satisfying. Over the next few days, I’ll share a few of my favorite fast avocado snacks. Enjoy!
