  1. Great post! These are three foods I love! I always love to read articles about the healthy benefits of foods that I like. Then I don’t have to adjust to eating different foods because I’m already eating foods that are good for me.

    Does it matter what percent of cocoa the dark chocolate has?

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you, Weston! The American Heart Association recommends for men to consume roughly 150 calories, about 9 teaspoons of dark chocolate with at least 72% cocoa solids to achieve heart health benefits. 

  2. I never really eat much avocado but I probs should include it more in my diet. I like to make chicken fajita stir-frys and avocado are a good, healthy alternative to guacamole. I think after having a read of your article that I’ll try to have this meal more on a regular basis, it tastes great so I don’t really have any reason not to!

    • Thank you for the positive comment, and for sharing your alternative for a healthy meal with the use of avocados in comparison to using guacamole! 

  3. So I guess it’s a good choice that I started with advocado egg salad as breakfast for the past few days. I eat with bread and bacon so it’s quite filling. I am pretty sure this will be a powerful breakfast for me to start my busy mornings. Wouldn’t hurt to go with a hot cup of chocolate too.
