That's right... it's NATIONAL GUACAMOLE DAY! We're in Texas so this is great, right? Avocados are huge right now and for good reason. Loaded with folate, potassium, vitamin B6 and monounsaturated fatty acids (AKA the "good" fat), avocados should be apart of your diet whether it's guac day or not!

Need creative ideas for incorporating avocados into your diet? Try these...
  • Salad. Add grapefruit slices, avocado chunks, and grilled shrimp onto a bed of mixed greens- yes, this is as delicious as it sounds ;-)
  • Chicken Salad. Skip the mayo, add avocado and blend 'til smooth.
  • ALT Sandwich. A vegetarian twist on your favorite sandwich using avocado, lettuce and tomato. Yum.
  • Creamy Salad Dressing. Combine lime juice, cilantro, non-fat plain yogurt, a pinch of salt and sugar + half of an avocado in your blender. This combo is refreshing and budget friendly (it's also a great substitute for Ranch)
  • [Healthy] Chocolate Shake. Yep. That's right. Add some avocado in your shake.Try it for yourself by clicking on this recipe by Eating Well.
Are you craving some delicious avocado now? Come by Cougar Woods today during lunch. We'll be serving Wholly Guacamole in honor of this great, healthy holiday!
