Happy Avocado Day!

I hope you like avocados because this is your day! Whether you like them whole, chopped up and made into guacamole (yum!), or slathered on toast-avocados are a superfood.

They’re a good source of monounsaturated fat, which helps reduce your risk of heart disease. They also have a bunch of nutrients that you need. Although a lot of the calories from avocados come from fat, eat away! (Just don’t eat too many at one time because they are loaded with fiber.)

How do you know when these green gems are ripe?

They will give way to a gentle squeeze, but not feel mushy. Usually, the skin is greener, but going by color alone can yield disappointment.

Enjoy your day to eat the green fruit. Sonja
