They claim to be 50% lower fat and 35% lower calorie compared to the leading California avocados. I'll tell you right now, it's not worth it.
I'm not just saying that because I'm being picky. I mean, I eat Better'n Peanut Butter all the time and it's clearly not better than peanut butter. I think with the SlimCado it's just so bland and void of flavor and creaminess that it's just not worth it to me.
It's almost as if the green color in avocados is what holds all the flavor, because as you can see the SlimCados are more yellow. I could have done without them on my lean beef tacos with grilled red pepper, brown rice, and baked beans (yeah, I said baked beans!). Nick agreed.
In case you were wondering, SlimCados are still a great source of vitamin E, fiber, B-vitamins, potassium, zinc, and monounsaturated fat. It may be worth it to try one if you are really trying to watch your fat and calories, but for me, as with most things, I'd prefer to eat the real thing, just less of it.
And on another note, can you tell which tomato is home grown?
If you guessed the bright red one on the right, you would be correct. All that extra red pigment signifies more health-promoting lycopene. What's not to love?! After our bountiful tomato summer, I doubt I'll ever be able to eat another non-homegrown tomato again! Ok, maybe I'm lying.....
QUESTION: Have you ever tried a SlimCado??
In other news, I said YES to the DRESS on Saturday! I know I have an entire year before I get married, but I'm a planner so I thought I would start early. The lady at the dress shop said it would take six months to get in, so I'm pretty happy that I started so early! I can't wait to show everyone. And for all of you who have yet to get married, I have one tip; try on all dresses that you like, even if it's not something you ever imagined wearing. The dress I chose was one I would never have imagined choosing, in a million years.
