Today is National Guacamole Day! We all know and love guacamole
as a party snack, but there's more to guacamole than meets the eye.
Guacamole is made from avocados, which are packed with more than twenty
vitamins, contain "good fats" that reduce cholesterol, can help fight
cancer, and can be used as a substitute for butter or shortening in
You can purchase pre-made guacamole at your local supermarket or buy
some ripe avocados to make your own. Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July,
Super Bowl Sunday, and Easter each account for approximately five
percent of annual avocado sales. Have no fear, avocado trees produce up
to 400 fruits a year so there should be plenty to go around. Happy
National Guacamole Day!
I have never had guacamole...
Guacamole is the best, especially homemade chunky ones. Nom!
