    I think you need to remind people that the nutrition they are getting out of the avocado is based on just one oz. so they don’t think they have to eat the whole thing. Also I think you need to make it easier for them to get to this page from the email notifications. and spell “Daily” correctly at the top of this page. Overall for me it’s much better and I like the daily stuff. I didn’t get Cory’s pic at first, but now that I see it on this page it’s very clear it’s a side view of me.
