YUM Avocado!

I love Avocados, don't you?  Okay, maybe not everybody out there loves avocados.  I fell in love with avocado's in college, I had guacamole for the first time, and it was a trip to flavour country - if I could, I would have avocados everyday.  I have had them plain, with salt and lime (which is my fave), in a shake, in a dip and of course, guacamole.  Still looking for even more ways to have avocado, and thats when I learned about avocado oil.

I have known about flavoured oils, especially coming from a nut of sort, I've seen, walnet, hazelnut, sesame, grapeseed, truffle, sundried tomato, garlic, an assortment of herbs such as basil and mint, chili, etc. not forgetting classic everyday oils such as veg, peanut, canola and olive oil (olive oil being a whole new post in itself).

But this post is about the beautiful Avocado and it's oil... It's one of the most nutritious oils out there.  Helps you have healthy hair, nails and skin.  Olivado has a great product, check it out:
