12 Reasons Why Avocados Are Social Media Superstars

You don't even have to eat them to reap the benefits.

In the past year or so, avocados have swept the nation. They are the most trendy thing you can put in your mouth or post to all of your social media accounts. The super food doesn't just help with lowering your cholesterol, it helps step up your social media game. Here are 12 reasons why avocados are the MVP of the internet.

1. They are extremely photogenic.

The light green hue does wonders for your picture, #nofilter needed.

2. They balance out your Instagram.

'Gramming your avocado toast in the morning is the perfect post to break up your selfies.

3. They instantly make you look next level.

Like, you chose to order something that has avocado in it over some chicken tenders. Sophistication at its finest.

4. They're easily obtainable.

Practically everyone can get their hands on an avocado. Its not like a pair of Yeezys or some Louboutins, avocados are extremely wallet friendly.

5. Appreciated at all ages.

To your family, it looks like you're eating healthy. To you, its all about your aesthetic. It doesn't take a 35 year old mother of two to appreciate an avocado.

6. They aren't just for your plate.

Since avocados have been so popular lately, avocados have jumped off the plate to your clothing, accessories, keychains, etc.

7. Guacamole.

That is all.

8. Avocados give you the chance to eat like your favorite celebrities.

A lot of the times you see your favorite celebs at bougie restaurants like Nobu or Tao, not your typical food place like McDonalds or Taco Bell. But, avocados are popular with the A list celebs, too. You can eat like them, all you need is a ripe avocado. Mindy Kaling is a fan of avocado toast.

9. No special occasion required.

There doesn't need to be a reason for some avocado action of your social media accounts. You don't have to be on a Hawaiian vacation for you to post up the weird fruit.

10. It's a chain effect.

If you see your friend's avocado post on Insta, you can easily be enticed to do the same. You gotta keep up with the Joneses.

11. They're a spa night essential.

Having a girl's night requires an Insta post and an avocado mask.

12. Avocados are aesthetically pleasing.

We live in a world where one's aesthetic is a priority. You can't say that a lot of green soft stuff is easy on the eye.

Now, stop what you're doing and post your avocado toast...if you haven't already.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.


I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
