[Mood Tip: Avocados are high in fat, but the fat is heart- and body-friendly monounsaturated fat. Research shows that including some of these fats in the diet (from nuts, seeds, olives, or avocados) helps with weight loss, possibly because they are so satisfying that we eat less later in the day.]
This refreshing salsa goes well as a topping on tacos, burritos, wraps, scrambled eggs, or as a dip for baked tortilla chips.
