Pomegranate Avocado. Talk about a super food duo!

Think avocados are only something to enjoy in the summer? Hah! Think again.
These lovely pomegranate avocados make for a wonderful winter snack or even a perfectly fun and beautifully colored side dish.
That isn't to mention that these are so super easy to pull together and the bright and merry colors are more than impressive!

A lot of times avocado can get a bad rap for it's high fat content. But, while that is true... the fat contained in avocado is somewhat unusual and provides many health benefits. It's heart healthy, anti-inflammatory, promotes blood sugar regulation, supports cardiovascular health, and has anti-cancer benefits!
Oh, and the pomegranates? They have some of the most powerful antioxidants of any fruit, have anti-cancer and immune supporting benefits, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, and even helps to relieve and prevent depression. Whoa! Now that's a super fruit!
