What's So Good About Them?
They're high in fat! (just kidding, kind of) There are good fats and bat fats, and the unsaturated fats present in avocados are very helpful to heart function. Avocados are also high in all kinds of nutrients such as fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin K.
Enjoy Them At Any Meal
Enjoyed as a snack or tossed in with a salad, avocados are deliciously versatile and blend in with any recipe...like this one:
Italian Herb Bites
1 bag of Italian Herb Extend Crisps
2 slices provolone cheese, cut up
2 campari tomatoes, halved and sliced
1/4 avocado, chopped into chunks
Layer the cheese, tomatoes and avocados onto Crisps. Dash of salt and pepper to taste.
Crispy, juicy and sweet…a go–to recipe for simple and healthy snacking. Also makes an attractive side dish for entertaining!
