Here’s a “firecracker” you can eat! Pop these creamy Cherry Tomato Bomb appetizers into your mouth in a single bite and enjoy the fireworks. Avocados are a good way to get more lutein in the diet and act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. This recipe provides 136 IU of lutein, a natural antioxidant concentrated in the macula of the eye, which research suggests may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age.
Serving Suggestion: If you have extra cream cheese and avocado, mix them together and add some Sriracha. Enjoy on pepper strips or crackers.
