National Avocado Day
July 3, 2019
National Avocado Day is Wednesday, July 3, 2019. The consumption of avocados has doubled since 2005 and quadrupled since 2000. Avocados have heart healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins C, E and K. The ancient Aztecs used the fruit for skin masks, and the 20th century cosmetic industry uses them in creams, lotions and facial cleaners. More people are eating avocados than ever before. They’re used in recipes for every meal, from breakfast with avocado on toast, to lunch with salads, to sushi and salsas, on burgers, in burritos, and desserts such as brownies.
