This month is all about avocados! Avocados are part of the fruit family but are more of a nut than an actual fruit in terms of their nutrient concentration. They are an excellent source of healthy fats and B vitamins, both of which give you sustained energy throughout the day. They make a great alternative to mayonnaise and in some cases sour cream and butter!

Did you know? Once picked it takes about 1-2 weeks for avocados to ripen at room temperature. Which means by the time you purchase them at the grocery store they usually only take about 1-3 days. You can get them to ripen faster by placing them next to fresh fruit like bananas or apples.
