|Check out those ripples of peanut butter. Almost gone|
***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey.
Generally I feel I’m a pretty happy individual. Of course I get grumpy around you know when. I’m soo in love with guacamole that I have been eating an avocado a day for at least a week. Well, I started getting this inner burst of extreme happiness. Oh my! It’s overwhelming. I feel so high on happiness. I know fat is nature’s Prozac. Avocados are high in fat. I put two and two together.
I decided to do some research into this magical fruit.
I typed into Google the keyword “Avocados Mood” and this is what came up:
Basically to sum up what all these articles say:
I’m feeling pretty darn happy because avocados are dopamine-enhancing foods (like chocolate), they contain omega fatty acids 3 which is another mood enhancer. I’ve been eating a whole avocado everyday so I’m giving my body a whole lot of happiness chemicals!
Here’s a cute and simple recipe that will also make you happy!!!
