We’re all about avocado here at Snap Kitchen. After all, avocado is one of those superfoods for a reason. While avocado is a little higher in calories than most fruits (and yes, it is a fruit), it’s incredibly high in healthy fats, too.
Here’s what else the avocado contains: tons of Vitamin K, Folates, Potassium (more than a banana!), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B5 & B6. Many of these nutrients are linked to reduced blood pressure — great for those looking to make their heart stronger.
You’ve probably also heard that avocado contains healthy fats. This refers to oleic acid — a major nutrient found in olive oil. It contains anti-inflammatory properties and has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer. Don’t even get us started on the fiber contained within a single avocado (3 grams or 11% of your daily serving!). Truly, the avocado contains multitudes.
So, today, on #NationalAvocadoDay, we wanted to celebrate all things avocado with some of our favorite #SnapHacks to elevate your lunch, no matter where you are.
Grain-free, gluten-free, and will totally satisfy those cravings. This large-sized portion of our classic Turkey Chili with Beans is only elevated when you heat up and then add our Wholly Avocado on top. All you need to do is open that bag of Siete chips and dip away!
Our barbacoa and street corn is one of our newer dishes, made with beef brisket that’s slow-cooked with tomato paste & seasonings, then paired with our house-made street corn for a healthier take on classic flavors. Dip them in avocado for an added kick.
Oh yes, we’re breaking out an all-time restaurant-sizzlin’ favorite for this one. Our recipe for the Chicken Chile Enchiladas is paleo, milk-free, gluten-free, and elevated with chicken breast, flavorful spices, and no added sugar. Heat up, add some wholly avocado.
Keto and gluten-free, this is your all-American classic. Pork sausage, scrambled eggs, cheesy rice cauliflower topped with avocado — consider your macros balanced.
In this fan-favorite, our grass-fed beef is topped with an over-easy egg and served with sweet potato wedges & pickles, hold the bun. Add wholly avocado on the side for that extra serving of wholesome, healthy fats.
6. Chicken Burrito Bowl with Avocado Salsa
Milk-free, gluten-free, and packed with flavors, this dish is a southwestern classic! We took roasted chicken thigh, veggies, and organic brown rice, added our avocado salsa, then mixed it all into one delicious, deconstructed bowl.
