Quick & Easy Breakfasts With California Avocado

Avocados are one of my favorite foods! Now that I live in California, I am a big fan of California Avocados! I also learned that 90 percent of avocados grown in the USA are produced in California. This year’s California Avocado season is coming to a close though, so don’t miss your chance to enjoy this creamy and delicious fruit! Avocados are also so versatile & great anytime throughout the day; lunch, dinner, dessert & even breakfast! Today I’m so excited to share with you three avocado breakfast recipes featuring California Avocados! Also a big thanks to the California Avocado Commission for partnering with us to make this video & post possible today!

California Avocado Highlights

  • One-third of a medium California Avocado (50 g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including 6% of the Daily Value (DV) for potassium. A diet rich in potassium helps to offset some ofthe harmful effects of sodium on blood pressure.
  • Get more good fats in California Avocados, 1g Poly and 5g Mono per 1/3rd of a medium avocado. Avocados are virtually the only fruit with good fats and are a delicious way to help people meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans’ recommendations to shift from eating saturated fat to good fats.
  • Avocados contain a good source (11%) of your DV of fiber and as a fresh fruit are a great way to help boost fiber intake. Fiber adds bulk to your diet and can help keep you feeling full faster and longer.
