    1. Mashed Avocado

    – Another one of the positives of National Nutrition Month falling on the month of March is that it is avocado season! Head to your local grocery store or farmer’s market and purchase a supply of fresh avocados and begin by cutting them in half. Sprinkle half an avocado with low sodium soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame seeds and chopped cilantro. Mash it all with a fork, place it in a fitting Tupperware, and take it with you for a 120 calorie snack on the go.
