Make Every Day an Avocado Day!

It’s Avocado Week at Brighter Bites! We’re celebrating our partnership with Avocados From Mexico and Mission Produce, who donated over 20,000 avocados to Brighter Bites families across the country.

Avocados are such a versatile food and can be incorporated into almost any meal. You can enjoy an avocado with just a sprinkle of salt as a snack or smashed in a sandwich for a more complete meal. We’re sharing some of our favorite recipes that contain avocados below. Make every day an avocado day with these winners!
