I'm confused about avocados, different people say it's bad and different people say it's good. I'm leaning more towards it being healthy for you, and that it's a form of "good fats" that you should be eating but at the end of the day, I'm still not sure. Would you know?

Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, aka “good fats”, that help lower cholesterol levels. They’re also high in fiber, potassium and various vitamins. Overall, they are healthy - although like all healthy foods, they still should be eaten in moderation. Or not, because of guacamole

Black Bean Burgers topped with Fresh Guacamole on a Homemade Bun!
I made these burgers for a couple of friends and I for a lovely Sunday night dinner, seems as though I end up making food for friends a lot! But, that’s okay, I love it. :D These were made much like the last batch I did, but I modified some of the ingredients and it is based of a recipe from the Daily Garnish.
Ingredients: (makes 6 burgers)
1 can Black Beans, Rinsed & Drained 
1 can Red Beans, Rinsed & Drained
1 Large Tomato, Chopped
1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten Flour 
1/4 cup Walnuts
1 tbsp olive oil 
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp cumin 
1/2 tsp coriander 
1/2 tsp chili powder 
1/2 tsp onion powder 
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 
1 tsp sea salt 
1/4 tsp black pepper 
Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Next, add the walnuts to your food processor and grind until coarsely chopped  (they will still be a little chunky).  Let it run for roughly 10  seconds. Add 3/4 of the beans, tomato, all spices, and the olive oil.  Once  all of this is in the food processor, give it a whir and mix it all  together. Then stir in the vital wheat gluten flour until it is thoroughly combined.
Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and then fold in the rest of the  whole, reserved beans.  Wet your hands and then form into 6 medium sized  patties.  Place patties on a non-stick baking sheet or into a baking  pan, and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, turning once in the  middle (for these I had to bake them for a little longer because they were too soft in the middle to flip).  If you want to grill these, pre-bake them for 30 minutes at  300, and then throw them on the grill to reheat and get a little extra  browning.

For the Guacamole:
Use 2-3 ripe avocados, mash them with diced tomato, cilantro, onion & garlic powder, pickled jalapeños (with a little juice from the jar, totally makes it!), and salt & pepper.

For the Buns:
I used a recipe from VegWeb, but halved the recipe and used half Whole Wheat flour and Half All Purpose Flour. And they were EASY to make. :) 

Homemade bun? God you’re awesome?
