Have you ever added mangos to your guacamole? If not, I highly recommend. It adds a lovely sweet kick to the savory dish. Sometimes I feel we get in a rut with avocados and only feel we can smash it up into guacamole for our tacos, but that is so far from the truth.
Other ideas for avocados
~ substitute for mayo in chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad or in vegetable dips
~ simply top your toast with it
~ scoop it out into a bowl, add a little salt & pepper and enjoy
~ add to your eggs
Avocados should be incorporated into our daily diets. They contribute a bustling 20 vitamins and minerals making it a “high five” choice to your meal plan. Avocados, due to their mono and polyunsaturated fat content, are a great substitution for foods rich in saturated fat.
