As an Avocado Lover, You Won’t Want to Miss the 20 Simple Recipes!

Unless you have been living underneath a rock for the last few years, it is likely that you are aware of the hype around avocados. They are one of the trendiest foods around, and it seems like everyone is starting to include avocados in their diet.

It isn’t too surprising that avocados are so popular, as they taste great and they are good for your health. Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fats, which can help to improve cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. They also contain vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant, and vitamin B6, which is great for your skin.

Another one of the main benefits of avocados is how well they go with everything. You can include avocado in your breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as desserts and snacks, due to its unique, smooth flavor.

If you want to include more avocado in your diet, here are some of the best avocado recipes for you to try.

Nintoaster: The Next Generation

The original Nintendo Entertainment System is affectionately called “the toaster” due to the way the cartridge is inserted. [MrBananaHump] decided to take things a bit literally and installed a NES inside an actual toaster. This isn’t [MrBananaHump’s] design, the Nintoaster comes to us from [vomitsaw], who also built the SuperNintoaster. Since [vomitsaw] was kind enough to document his original build, [MrBananaHump] was able to build upon it.

The target toaster for this build was a plastic Sunbeam model found at a thrift store for $5. [MrBananaHump] gutted the toaster and cleaned out years of toast crumbs. The Nintendo mainboard would fit…

What to Eat to Cleanse Your Palate of Unicorns, Mermaids, and Rainbows

First there was the rainbow bagel. Then mermaid toast made a brief splash. Now, as I’m sure you’re all aware, Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino is dominating the mouths and Instagram accounts of many a millennial. It’s all very pretty, but I need a palate cleanser.

As a person who kept her pre-algebra homework in a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper—I think mine had some manic dolphins on it—I will admit I get a cheap thrill from gazing upon these multi-colored creations, but I don’t want to ingest them. (It’s the same thrill I got when I picked up a pair of jelly sandals this weekend at Urban Outfitters. I almost bought them, but then I remembered the jelly sandal-inflicted blisters of my youth and reconsidered.)

Yes, we eat with our eyes first, but my eyes are tired of rainbow overload, and not quite sure if they’re being poisoned or not. (Actually, I would totally drink a Poison Tree Frog Frappuccino. Someone please get on that.) Maybe it’s because my grandmother made a lot of casseroles, but my eyes always seem to land on beige, aggressively unphotogenic food. Those dishes are usually the most delicious. Think of Thanksgiving dinner: It’s a sea of browns, yellows, and beige, and it’s one of the tastier meals of the year.

There’s also a level of preciousness with these rainbow-infused delicacies that doesn’t sit right with me. Like it or not—and I really like it—food is something you have to deal with on a daily basis, and prioritizing form over function can get exhausting. I think that’s my main issue with this rainbow/unicorn/mermaid trend. It’s not really about the food, but the optics. It’s all marketing—very good marketing, but marketing still. If you really want a colorful bagel, try topping it with a couple of heirloom tomato slices, or maybe some watermelon radishes. These things add color, texture, and flavor. I’ve also heard that berries make beautiful beverages.

Beige food may not get you many likes on social media, but it will fill you up and bring you joy. If, like me, you need a break from highly pigmented cuisine, we…
