Thread: Official FDA avocado serving size got bigger.

  1. #1

    Official FDA avocado serving size got bigger.

    How do they figure this stuff??

    I just read that the FDA has increased the "official" serving size from 1/5 of an avocado, all the way up to 1/3.

    What??

    These people have never eaten an avocado.

    If you're interested in a 1/3 (erg!) serving; the FDA says it comes out to:
    -- 80 calories
    -- zero sodium and cholesterol
    -- Good source of fiber
    -- 254 MG potassium

    Like that "good source of fiber". Also a good source of OMG.

    And only zero sodium until, you know, you eat it.

    Ha! You crazy Americans. :^) Super-avocado-size me!

    Next thing you'll tell me, I guess, mon ami Mike, is that there's a U.S. presidential debate tonight with *Donald Trump* as one of the two last candidates! Ha, ha!

    ... Oh. Wait. :^(

    I can't even go there. I am so tired of people from other countries making snide comments about Americans.

    Are we American's thin skinned?

    Because we, like, never make jokes about folks from other countries. LOL

    Debate night: perfect time for a big bowl of guacamole. With at least 3 FDA servings of avocado!

    The Donald is extremely thin-skinned, in my Canadian opinion, very much confirmed after watching him last night.

    BTW, I certainly don't want to offend anyone, especially mtj, who is helping to keep these forums alive.
