Meal Plan: Avocado Week!
It’s here, it’s here, it’s here…my second most favorite time of year! Christmas is my favorite time of year, but let me tell you…avocado season is a very close second! And I’m lucky enough to live in Southern California where loads of yummy avocados are grown! Last week a friend gifted me about 20 avocados so it just felt like the right time to plan a week’s worth of avocado meals! And it was AH-mazing!!!
Monday – Sweet Potato Nachos from Two Peas and Their Pod
Tuesday – Taco Chicken Zucchini from The Gracious Pantry
Wednesday – Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa from The Cookie Rookie
Thursday – Chicken and Avocado Enchiladas from Gimme Some Oven
Friday – Bacon Chicken Avocado Pizza from Treadmill Runway
In an effort to make your dinner prep a little easier each day, here are a few things you can do at the beginning of the week to prep the meals…
*Cut up 1 1/2 pounds of chicken into bite size pieces for the Taco Chicken Zucchini
*Cook and shred 4 1/2 cups of chicken…if you’re looking to save time don’t forget that once you cook the chicken, you can shred it quickly in your KitchenAid mixer
*Cook the bacon and cut into pieces
What is your favorite way to eat an avocado?
I eat at least half an avocado a day. Now I have more things to make them with. Thank you.
You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy these recipes!

I love your meal plans! These are definitely some creative uses of avocados! I’m also excited to try the sweet potato nachos since we should have lots of sweet potatoes in the garden this year!
Thank you! I don’t think I should even admit out loud how often we eat sweet potato nachos here!
Yum! I am loving avocados lately and these recipes are prefect picks! Thanks for sharing and thank you so much for stopping by The Mindful Shopper!
I hope you enjoy the recipes!

Wow! That’s a lot of avocados! I used to not like them, but a few years ago I had a fresh one and fell in love!
Once you have a fresh avocado, they’re difficult to resist!
