Cool down and hydrate this summer with this chilled cucumber avocado soup.  Avocados are filled with fiber, helping you feel full as well. They're also filled with belly-flattening monosaturated fats. While these are the "good" kinds of fats, you don't want to overdo it! But avocados are a great way to lend some flavor to your dishes while you're doing your weight loss thing during the Shred!!
