Add all remaining ingredients, mixing well with a blender. I prefer my brownies a little lumpy, but it’s the chef’s choice.

The Glorious Avocado
Avocado is an important addition to the athlete’s diet. An avocado a day offers protective heart health, eye health, antioxidants, and lots of potassium, folate, vitamin C, E, B6, and K – all of which aid recovery time, decrease cramping, and benefit overall health.

It can be hard to know when avocadoes are ripe. Touch can tell you a lot. When you can slightly indent your thumb into the avocado, it is at the optimal level of ripeness. Another trick is to remove the end stem at the top of the avocado and check ripeness based on color. A greenish tip means it is not ready, whereas a nice yellow tip means it’s game time. This method has proven to be fairly accurate.

What we do in the gym supports our best athletic performance, and the kitchen is another powerful area to assist this goal. Consider adding avocado to foods you often eat. Guacamole isn’t your only option. Check out my top three favorite alternative uses for avocados that will have you happy, healthy, and enjoying some tasty dishes.
