G’s Tip of the Week – Avocado Oil

Gina continues to show the avocado some love. This time she discusses avocado oil. Check it out.


Last week was all about the avocado and this week it is all about the oil. Avocado oil is a healthy alternative to vegetable oils. It is rich in monounsaturated fats just like olive oil and it is stable at high heat, which makes it great for cooking. It adds delicious flavor to sautes but also also makes a great base for salad dressings. High in beta-carotene, Vitamin E, and lutein and with such a delicious flavor, pick up some avocado oil and add it to your favorite dishes.
