Avocado is this week’s Produce Mom Pick!

When I think about avocados, the first thing that comes to mind is guacamole. However, avocados are much more versatile than you think! I love putting an avocado slice on a fried egg sandwich, or tossing avocado chunks into salad. The options are endless!

One unique use for avocados is tossing them into sushi balls! Sushi recipes are plentiful, but this sushi rice balls with avocado recipe by our friend, California Avocado Commission is  is extremely easy to make, only has a few simple ingredients, and is beyond delicious. Try them for yourself – you won’t be disappointed 🙂

Avocados are extremely rich in dietary fiber (40% DV) and vitamin C (25%), and has 3 grams of protein per serving! You should also be aware that avocados have a high fat content, so it is not recommended that you consume more than one at a time 🙂
