Nature’s Bacon (avocado nickname)

"Avocado is nature’s bacon” was written by Leah Reich in The Atlantic on March 22, 2013. Reich meant that the avocado is a heathful food experiencing the same popularity as bacon.

The saying has been used earlier. “I’ve long referred to the avocado as ‘nature’s bacon,’ because both make everything taste better” was cited in 2006.

I’ve long referred to the avocado as “nature’s bacon,” because both make everything taste better.

Oh, the Avocados You’re Missing!
95 percent of what’s available in the U.S. is only one of over 900 varieties.

In this age of urban foraging and celebrity chefs and websites loaded with food porn, few foods are more thoroughly fetishized than the avocado. Well, you might say bacon. But as I’ve been known to counter, “Avocado is nature’s bacon.”

It is everywhere. There are entire sites devoted to avocado recipes.
