They just might be the world’s most perfect superfood.
I’m talking about Avocados from Mexico, of course! Fresh, delicious, authentic, and available year-round, avocados contain nearly essential 20 vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds like 81 micrograms lutein and zeaxanthin, which research suggests may help maintain eye health as we age. And, more than 75 percent of the fat in avocados is considered “good” fat, with 3g coming from monounsaturated fat and 0.5g from polyunsaturated fat (per 1-ounce serving). Not only that, but avocados are also completely free of cholesterol and sodium.
But the most compelling reason to love Avocados from Mexico? GUAC.
At my house, it’s Guac O’Clock all the time! Guacamole with tortilla chips. Guacamole with veggies. Guacamole as a sandwich spread. Guac all the things!
And what better time to celebrate my favourite dip than Cinco de Mayo – that’s right, it’s time for a Twitter Fiesta!
