Avocados have such a pretty color, don't you agree? I think it's one of my favourite colors in Mother Nature's rainbow. Though I've tried several different varieties of this little power-nutrient fruit, the only kind that seems to be available in my area is the Hass variety. When you look at the knobbly brownish-green skin, it's hard to believe that there is something so creamy, rich and smooth inside. It's like another example of the old saying "don't judge a book by its cover."
I made up a haiku about Hass avocados the other day while I was cutting one up to add to a salad.

Haikus are fun, I think I might try to make up some more!
