Here are some heart healthy ideas using avocados. Nutritionist Malena Perdomo, spokesperson for Aguacates Frescos – Saborea Uno Hoy, joins us to talk about living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
She says to make smart “swaps” of bad fats for good fats in our daily diet with help from wonderful avocados!
What to replace? She says in place of butter in baked goods, and switching out mayo with a smear of avo is good too.
I learned so much from this interview, it all makes me love avocados even more.
Did you know the predominant fat in avocado is unsaturated?
According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, replacing saturated fats can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in the blood. Avocados can be a satisfying and yummy addition to a reduced-calorie diet when eaten in place of other fat sources. My husband calls avocados “nature’s mayo” – lol!

That’s so eclectic and charming! Hope you get tons of positive feedback. It’s definitely worth it.
She is beautiful! I especially like her neck and head – it gives us a glimpse as to what is going on in there!
The glittery varnish really gives her a glow of light. How about the name Luz? A beautiful name meaning light, for a beautiful and empowered woman.
I will definitely be at Scottsdale Fashion Square this October to see your woman as well as all the others. Thanks for sharing this!
Oh Kathy! She is wonderful and inspiring. I just love what you did to make this simple female form into something original – reminding me that is something we should all do for ourselves (inside and out).
Thank you for sharing this!!
Name her Luz!
Awww, there you go yet again — another fab masterpiece! I see that you have had several suggestions for Luz — why not make her Lady Luz? She is definitely a lady with mucho light within to make her shine and sparkle so much without! — just like you, dear heart!
