I found this article on Pinterest and couldn't resist sharing it with the Flaming Vegan community. It's an amazing idea that you can swap avocado for so many non-vegan ingredients, reduce fat and make a healthier recipe overall. Although this article is about reducing fat belly, I saw so much more potential in it than that. Avocados are simple a super food by providingnearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. Hope you enjoy!

"Food Swaps That Fight Belly Fat Don’t eat less—eat smarter. This may sound a little adventurous, but you won’t taste the difference: Switch out half of the butter in a cookie recipe for mashed avocado. This simple change will reduce fat content by 40% and cut the number of calories by nearly as much. You’ll still get the creaminess of butter and the fatty taste, but this substitution knocks out some of the saturated fat in favor of the belly-flattening monounsaturated kind. Sure your cookies might have a green tinge, but they should also be chewier and softer."
