    FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Superfood + Cheese = Summer Taste Sensation 

With 20 vitamins and minerals and loads of fiber in every serving, avocados are one of nature’s most amazing superfoods. They’re a great source of vitamins C, E, K and B-6 as well as riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, potassium and folate. And although most of this delicious fruit’s calories come from fat, don’t worry! It’s the healthy monounsaturated fat that lowers cholesterol, helps keep you full and satisfied and supports the absorption of beneficial fat-soluble antioxidants. Just a few of the other benefits of avocado include:
High fiber – shown to lower the risk of disease, obesity, stroke, hypertension and diabetes.
Lutein – keeps eyes healthy and helps protect the skin against UV damage.
Folate – has shown promise in protecting against colon, stomach, pancreatic, and cervical cancers.

Happy Father’s Day to the Big Cheese.

A thoughtful card and gift is great, but ask any dad what his dream Father’s Day would be and his likely response: spending the day doing the things he loves accompanied by all his favorite foods. It’s as simple as that!
