Avocados are pretty much the IT food of 2017 and for good reason. So we’ve taken the beloved green fruit and turned it into a glorious fall celebration. This mix of pomegranates, pepitas and avocado are perfect for a Thanksgiving appetizer, a midday snack or straight off of a spoon (we won’t judge you).
Avocados are full of nutrients. Did you know that they contain more potassium than bananas and can reduce blood pressure? As we all know, avocados are also full of fat but not just any fat. The fat in avocado is oleic acid – a monounsaturated fatty acid that is believed to be responsible for reduced inflammation and beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer.
