There are hundreds of types, but nearly 95 percent of avocados we see in Southern California are Hass Avocado. Originally from Central Mexico, this fruit, with a dark green thick bumpy skin is sometimes referred to as Alligator pear.
Jinnie, my friend, and our neighbor, recently gave us a shopping bagful of farm fresh avocados.
I LOVE fresh avocados with firm meat. They are highly nutritious and a good source of protein. I find ways to incorporate them in my breakfast and lunch plates to give me quick energy and feeling of fullness without interfering with my physically active lifestyle.
