    Hi. These lunches all sound YUMMY and may be the boost I need to start meal prepping. I do notice that at least half the meals include avocado. If I’m trying to lose weight, I wonder if eating some every day is still healthy eating, or if this good day should be used more sparingly. What do you suggest?

      Avocado is an excellent source of the healthy fats your body needs. As part of a healthy diet, there is no reason that small portions of avocado cannot be enjoyed daily. We hope you enjoy the recipes! Let us know what you think.
