From avocado toast and beyond, these will become your 8 favorite ways to eat the superfood of superfoods

I’m obsessed with a good alligator pear & I’m constantly looking for new ways dress them up a bit to keep my eating habits more ~exotic~ and ~diverse~ and overall ~healthier~ than before. So I’ve compiled a few of my favorite ways to consume an avocado–and they are sure to become your favorite as well!

ok without further ado, my 8 (+) ways to eat avocados:

  1. the classic avocado toast

    1. Ezekiel seseame toast, butter it & sprinkle some cheese ((microwave that shit so its ~meltayyy~))
    2. Really any other kind of toast (NOT brioche bc fuck brioche)
    3. using your Pampered Chef Avocado peeler (pictured below) ((it’s sharp enough to pierce the skin but dull enough to avoid a stigmata wound–and angled perfectly to pop out the pit with ease))  slice that shit up, plop it all onto the toast. avocado-peeler
    4. Season and enjoy!!
  2. avocado on a plate

    1. slice up an avocado and put it on a plate
    2. use my favorite seasoning, ‘Slap ‘Ya Mama’ cajun seasoning generously seasoning-family_385df23c-f1f5-4425-84d4-06286e4b905b_grande.jpg
    3. enjoy with your fave chip of tortilla, pita, or potato origin. (bonus points for flaming hot cheetos tho)
  3. avocado Mediterranean chicken salad-

    1. mashed avocado, shredded chicken, chopped up hard-boiled egg, & diced tomatoes, feta perhapz
    2. mix all of that shit together add a lil dash of some seasoning and literally whatever else, serve it up next to some toast or something and go for it!!!
  4. avocado tabouli

    1. i really like tabouli like a lot but I’m not the type to like actually make it (so much chopping omg), so I just grab it from Trader Joe’s and then add it as sort of like a lil garnish for a sliced avocado. delish, man. trader-joes-logo.png
  5. quick guac-

    1. again with the chopping :/ so to save my time and sanity, I start with like a good pico de gallo and then mix in some avocado and a lil more lime!
    2. for bonus points eat with tostito’s with a hint of lime and holi shit
    3. also, for a super quick but high yielding situation, use a reed avocado–THEY ARE FUQQING HUGE. I found them at Whole Foods…it’s the only place i’ve seen them in my life thus far one is pictured in the video below::                          –prepare yourselves people–
  6. bacon~spinach~guacamole salad

    1. No surprise here, it’s literally a spinach salad made with guac and bacon.
    2. Toss it all together so that the avocado kind of like coats the spinach and acts as a bit of a dressing (i fuqqing hate real dressings so this works the best for me)
    3. Sometimes I get a lil fancy and throw like some candied pecans in or pieces of crispy cheese or some shit. V good.images
  7. avocado, tomato, cucumber, & cottage cheese medley

    1. Dice the vegetables, mix ’em all up in a bowl
    2. add cottage cheese
    3. dust a lil salt n’ pepper on there, some Lawry’s seasoning perhaps, or Slap ‘Ya Mama once again
    4. Mix it and enjoy, bitch!
  8. on literally everything:

    1. leftover/brand new pizza
    2. leftover/brand new pasta
    3. hamburger patties
    4. with eggs
    5. hamburgers in general
    6. tacos obviously
    7. nachos
    8. get creative, go wild!!Avocado-Puns-Memes

And so there you have it! A lil more than 8 suggestions on how to eat the most famous superfood of our generation every day without getting bored of it!!

“The Avocado Song” LiVE @ Genghis Cohen

Last Friday, the incomparable Eliza Spear invited me up during her set @ Genghis Cohen to perform a few songs including this original inspired by one of my true lovez: avocados.

Enjoy! (ALSO, you can stream the song on ALL PLATFORMS now!!)

The Bezt 2018 Grammy Performances

I know this is a little belated, but i mean the official videos of most of these Grammy performances didn’t become available until last week, and I know most of you probably didn’t go searching for them on your own in the meantime, so here we are.

It’s a nice surprise and you know you think so.

This year’s show was packed with performances and most all of them delivered. Plus, Chappelle killed as the host.

So anyway, without further ado, here are my faves from that chilly January night:

Rihanna gives me the wildest of wild thoughts so, I mean. Do I really need to say anything else? DJ Khaled isn’t my favorite but i deal, you know.

P!nk always delivers. Her vocals are killer and she just was like fuqq it, I’m wearing jeans, a tshirt, and no shoes and I’ll still sound better than these hoes. and she did.

Speaking of vocals, this kid absolutely slays every person in the audience with his voice. Childish was of course, great as always.

Skip U2’s appearance and this is, as Kendrick’s performances always are, gold. to do this, jump from 2:03-2:31 and enjoy!

Two of my favorite people in music together on the Grammy stage!! I mean come on, what more could you ask for as a citizen of this earth? (a lot more, i get it but like, this is probably on your list)

The ’90s are my shit and this performance (and the song) evokes all the edgy ‘Saved By The Bell’ vibes you could possibly want. Cardi B is a great performer and paired with Bruno Mars and The Hooligans, it’s some next level fun time shit.

I’ll be honest, it wasn’t my most favorite Kesha performance of all time, but singing the song you wrote about your abuser to a room full of people who know him and have worked with him and didn’t believe you would be a lot. Plus I was like okay ladies, you’re all on this stage for a reason!! join her, help her out, like something, you know. But overall,  a very powerful performance and hopefully some souls are changing.

I have no words bc this performance literally says them all, so.. Logic for president 2024, ppl.

Overall it was a pretty solid show I thought. I wish some of the awards would’ve been placed in different hands but here we are. People have their opinions about the Grammys and the Recording Academy, and as they should. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sit back and enjoy some of our favorite artists performing some of our favorite songs amirite?

I’m right.

GRAMMY NOMS ARE IN AND IDK HOW I FEEL

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards are upon us, and earlier than usual it seems. The show will air January 28th on CBS from Madison Square Garden, NYC. Yes, you read that correctly. NYC.Madison-Square-Garden

This upsets me because I moved to Los Angeles with the idea in my head that at the very least I’d be standing a safe distance away from the building at the 2018 Grammy Awards. this would be easily accomplished by car.

Now, I have to get on a fucking airplane for the chance. And like idk, maybe I won’t. I don’t like the cold and it will be January in New York so, idk.

Okay so moving past the location fiasco, this past year was insane for music. Incredible projects popped up left and right from newcomers like Khalid and old favorites like Jay Z (while truthfully I didn’t give 4:44 more than a few listens–I’ve been pissed at him for cheating since “Irreplaceable” told the woke people what the fuqq was up in ’06)

But okay, okay, let’s look at some of the most exciting categories (with my favorites in purple) before I continue with my commentary:

I’m cutting it off there because there are like 84 Grammy categories and I do not have that kind of time.

If you have that kind of time, click here for the full list of 2018 Grammy nominees.

I’m elated at the attention Kesha, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, & SZA received from the academy but I do wish we would’ve seen a nom for Harry Styles’s ballad-heavy, self titled solo debut album–it seems though that the academy’s disdain for One Direction didn’t die with the band.

Harry-Styles-Sings-One-Direction-Solo-Tour

Zayn, however, was nominated for his work with the snake for 50 Shades Darker, “I Don’t Wanna (Live Forever)”.  If he wins, he’ll be the only former One Direction member to ever win, but for now he’s just the only former One Direction member to ever be nominated.

Going back to my elation about Kesha’s recognition: HFS I’ve never been so happy about a Grammy nominee, I think. After the fuqqed up situation she lived for so long, she deserves every ounce of goodness that comes her way. Plus her album was really, really fuqqing good. I lived each song in some way, you know? Still do. That shit doesn’t happen with every album I listen to. Plus her concert was dope.

PLUS: “Old Flames” (track 12 on Rainbow) is a cover of the song that Kesha’s mom wrote for Dolly Parton to sing on her 1980 smash Dolly, Dolly, Dolly. So obviously that’s fuqqing dope.

ANYWAY, THOUGHTS OVER THE OTHER NOMS:

1-800-273-8255 deserves the honor of Song of the Year. Logic, Alessia Cara, and Khalid shed so much-needed light on mental health. Their powerful performance at the 2017 VMAs reminded us that their song wasn’t just a catchy chart topper–it’s real. If you or anyone you know is contemplating suicide, reach out to the suicide hotline immediately.

Cardi B has continued destroying records, and is now the first solo female rap artist to be nominated for Best Rap Performance.

KSmMBEvY

She will also ‘B’ up against her fiancé, Offset, in said category–(the birth of a new music dynasty?).

With his many Emmy and Grammy wins, Donald Glover is well on his way to EGOT status, and that is impressive as fuqq–and goals as fuqq.

Understandably, “Despacito” was honored despite being one of the most over-played songs ever but it was, after all, like one of the biggest songs in the world. It is the first non-english song to be nominated for both Song and Record of the Year.

I ~almost~ have the entire chorus memorized.

Though she’s never won, this is the first time Katy Perry was not recognized for an eligible body of work. And I mean, Witness was alright, you know…but bitch also stole my googly eye look so idk.

Apparently there’s major drama in the music theatre world when it comes to Grammy nominations but that’s going to take a lot to get into so just take my word for it.

Season seven of Game of Thrones received a nod from the academy, as Ramin Djawadi’s score was nominated for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media (against La La Land –which I wasn’t that impressed with?–Arrival, Hidden Figures, and Dunkirk–at least something Harry Styles was apart of was nominated).

Also, excuse me while I lol so hard bc “Look What You Made Me Do” was eligible…and the other two atrocity singles the snake put out this year but all of them were passed up.

“LWYMMD” was even eligible for best music video but nah, they saw right through that shit.

People are saying Ed Sheeran was snubbed but like Divide was annoying, so, no. He wasn’t.

2018’s list of nominees does hit on an important trend. The academy appears to have taken streaming success into consideration, as most of the categories are dominated by online chart toppers. And they did a modestly better job of beefing up diversity throughout all categories except Record of the Year (all men).

So anyway, despite my deeply felt annoyance around this year’s location change and lack of je ne sais quoi, I’ll definitely be tuning in. I have no idea who’z slated to perform but that will make the show a lil more exciting, I think.

As always, check out my Twitter page that day for the most annoying barrage of hilarious real-time Grammy commentary.
