Cinco de Mayo calls for Avocados
Thursday is Cinco de Mayo, which for most of us means an excuse to enjoy tacos, margaritas, chips and salsa, and other unhealthy (but delicious) treats! But, you can enjoy the holiday without the guilt of not eating well, especially by enjoying tasty avocados.
From guacamole to Avocado salad, this wonderfully delicious vegetable is a great and healthy snack option on Cinco de Mayo and any day. Here are just a few of its benefits:
- Avocados are loaded with potassium (more than bananas!)
- Avocados are high in antioxidants
- Avocados are full of fiber
- Avocados boast heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids
So pick up an avocado next time you are at the store, or simply enjoy our Avocado Salad (found in the deli). It's a delicious and healthy choice!
