The Testicle Tree

For a long time, I thought, "Naturally, all fruit taste sweet." That is, until I tried avocado. I wasn’t a big fan at first, but now I can’t get enough of it!

The green food originated in Central and South America, and is also popular in Mexico, and the Caribbean.

In fact, the Aztecs used to call it ahuacatl, which stands for the ‘testicle tree.

Since Spanish explorers could not pronounce that word, they changed it to aguacate, which is the source of my favorite dip, guacamole.

There are over 500 kinds of avocado, the Hass, being the most popular in the U.S., and the only one grown all year.

Avocados are the best fruit source of Vitamin E and carotenoid lutein, which is great for eye health.

They also help to prevent heart disease, onset of stroke or cancer (prostate, breast, and oral specifically), as well as aging. What’s more is that avocado helps with nutrient absorption so it makes a perfect fit with any dish, especially salad.
