How does SlimCado? compare to avocado?
Asked by sed1949 on Jul 25, 2009 in Weight Loss



My grocery now carries Lite SlimCado with 35%fewer calories and 50% less fat than regular according to the label.  Before I buy one can you tell me what the taste is like compared to regular avocado? I love fresh avocado slices in salad as well as guacamole.


Answer

Some people say that, compared to a Hass avocado, SlimCado® tastes less creamy and more bitter and bland than other avocados, but I've never tasted one. (My daughter, however, did say it ruined her guacamole.) SlimCado is a West Indian variety of avocado (Persea americana var. Americana) that has smooth glossy green skin and can weigh up to 2 pounds. SlimCado® does have less fat and calories but it remains a great source of vitamin E, fiber, B-vitamins, potassium, zinc, and monounsaturated fat.  SlimCado avocados are sold from June until the end of July.  Use them as you would use any other avocado.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
