With Fresh Fruits & Veggies, Everybody Wins!
Hosting a game day gathering? Give your guests a winning spread that shines the spotlight on avocados and other fresh fruits and vegetables. Offering great taste—and great health benefits—avocados are a flavorful, healthy addition to your football watching festivities.
Avocados are prized for their lush, silky texture, versatility and mildly nutty flavor. And avocados are not simply a delicious indulgence—they are a very healthy one. They have a high content of heart-healthy Monounsaturated Fats and contribute nearly 20 minerals, vitamins and beneficial nutrients, including Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Folate, fiber, Iron and Potassium. And the great news is, there are numerous ways to enjoy them.
- Homemade guacamole is a party staple for many, and it is fantastic served with healthy dippers like celery or carrot sticks. Rich, creamy and delicious, it's an irresistible replacement for other less nutritious chip and dip combinations. Healthy ingredients like tomatoes (which are rich in Antioxidants) cilantro, onion and lime juice add extra flavor to guacamole—without adding a lot of extra calories or fat.
- Make a healthy homemade citrus and grapefruit salsa; the creamy, mellow flavor of avocados and the clean, tart taste of grapefruit beautifully complement one another. Diced citrus fruits and avocado are also sensational served with healthy, low fat proteins like grilled chicken or fish. This is a fresh, easy way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your menu.
- Avocados have a wonderfully luscious, creamy texture, which makes them a healthy substitute for butter, mayonnaise or sour cream. Sliced and added to sandwiches, or diced and arranged over a salad of fresh greens, avocados make the healthiest foods feel a little more indulgent.
