Why Avocados from Mexico
Avocados are maybe the most Mexican fruit you can eat. They are a significant part of Mexico’s culture and heritage. The 12,650 growers show passion and dedication as they contribute to an economic resource that creates pride and joy by bringing families and friends together for special occasions like a Cinco de Mayo fiesta. As an example, you could fill a stadium up to 12 feet with guacamole made from just avocados sold for parties held during the big game. Avocados from Mexico are never out of season. They taste great and they are always fresh.
Avocados and Nutrition
Avocados are a super fruit. They are also technically a berry if you can believe that. They are the fool of essential fats that are perfect for helping your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, and K. One medium avocado is three servings of fruit. Each serving has roughly 80 calories and 6 grams of healthy fat.
Contrary to most fruits, which are high in carbs and low in fats, avocados flip the script. That’s why they are so great to have on hand when doing keto. The bulk of avocado fat is monounsaturated which is good and it’s what makes the fruit so creamy and easily blended with other ingredients to make anything from dip to ice cream. Avocados make a healthy substitute for mayo, butter, or margarine.
