Have You Ever Had A Run-in With A Wild Animal?

My wife, kids and I were camping this weekend at Lake Tahoe and had a bear raid our campsite and eat all the food out of our cooler. It was a great bonding experience! Have you ever had a crazy encounter with an animal??? ~ Scott

Healthy Eating with Christine Avanti--love those avocados!



Holy Guacamole!

Avocados are not only a super food but they are also a flat tummy food.  Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids which are the Kobe Bryant’s of the nutrition world when it comes to weight loss.  According to a study in the journal of Diabetes Care dieters who consumed monounsaturated fats lost more tummy fat than those eating the same number of calories but less fats. 


Hmmm….what’s really going on here?  Well….when we eat carbohydrates on their own…for example a bag of chips….blood sugar levels peak and send a signal to your body to store fat in your midsection.  But monounsaturated fats (such as the ones found in our dear friend the avocado) actually stop those fat accumulating blood sugar spikes dead in their tracks.  Half a cup of cubed avocado contains only 11 grams of healthy fat.  So, have some homemade guacamole and baked tortilla chips and burn some belly fat!  Who knew! 


Check out Christine Avanti’s Guacamole and Homemade Tortilla Chips only 152 Calories and 11 grams of fat!  Yum!

She says it takes less than 15 minutes to whip up this good-for-you fat burning snack.
