It’s avocado season! Whoohooo! Who doesn’t love a good avocado? They're creamy, savory, and full of delicious healthy fat. They make a great addition to sandwiches, a substitute for numerous ingredients, and they even make a killer face mask.

Also, they look like dragon eggs which is pretty cool...
