The Scoop on Avocados
While the origins of this annual food holiday are unknown, guacamole is a tasty treat that has been enjoyed for centuries. Typically eaten as a dip, condiment, snack or spread, guacamole is made from avocados, which are loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals. Avocados not only taste great, but the “good” monounsaturated fat in avocados help reduce cholesterol levels too.
Whether you dip it or spread it, why not serve up some delicious guacamole today in honor of National Guacamole Day? Can you dig it?
