Have I ever told you how much I love Hass avocados?? I do! I could eat an avocado on pretty much anything. Many people think of guacamole when they think of avocados but there is so much more you can do with them!
Avocados are perfect on top of burgers. Ever tried a turkey burger with a little sliced avocado, salsa, and pepper jack cheese? If you haven’t, you should. It’s delicious!
But my favorite go-to snack is avocado sushi! My family loves going out to sushi restaurants for dinner, however, I hate raw fish. I can’t stand the texture or smell. But every place we go has avocado sushi! You can even add a little cucumber in for crunch.
I guess what I’m trying to tell you all is there are so many ways to enjoy a delicious Hass avocado. Here’s a few little fun facts about Hass Avocados you may not be aware of –
- Avocados contain naturally good monounsaturated fat and are cholesterol free. Naturally good fats are an important part of a healthy diet.
- According to a survey by Fresh Avocados – Love One Today®, over 75% of the fat in avocados is unsaturated (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats), making them a great substitute for foods high in saturated fat.
- According to a survey by Fresh Avocados – Love One Today®, 53% of consumers are currently dieting, but only 30% are eating several servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
- Avocados, which are a fruit although most people think of them as a vegetable, contain less than one gram of sugar per 1-ounce, the least amount of sugar per serving of any other fresh fruit.
- Avocado contributes nearly 20 vitamins, mineral, and phytonutrients, making it a good choice to help meet nutrient needs.
- Avocados act as a “nutrient booster” by helping the body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene and lutein, from foods that are eaten with the fruit.
- So versatile, fresh avocados can be used in any meal or dish. They can be used as a recipe substitute for bad fats, a way to add naturally good fats, a nutrient-dense fruit to add nutrient value, and as a vegan or vegetarian possible alternative to dairy products.
I’m a huge fan of avocados. My family enjoys them in one dish or another at least once a week. I highly encourage you to try them on your next burger or maybe order an avocado roll the next time you are out.
