I'm having my guacamole with carrots this afternoon to lighten up the snack - rather than the usual tortilla chips. Tastes just as good - and gets you two veggies for the price of one!! Did you know that the avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable - it is a berry. Has more protein than any other berries also - 4 grams! Why do I know this? My kids love avocados and will eat them above other foods so I wanted to know how much if any protein might lurk inside. Was I delighted and surprised when I found out!
