Wake Up Your Breakfast With California Avocados

Temecula, California (NAPSI) - They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  What better way to start your morning off than with a delicious dish  featuring fresh California  avocados?

With nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, avocados provide beneficial “good  fats” to help you perform your best at work, school or wherever you may go.  Plus, they add a velvety texture and unbeatable flavor to any breakfast—whether  it’s on-the-go or a casual get-together with friends.

Los Angeles−based chef Neal Fraser of  BLD®, Fritzi Dog®, Redbird and The Strand House®   has partnered with the California Avocado Commission to share one of his  favorite California  avocado breakfast recipes.

“I enjoy cooking with California  avocados, as they bring a great mild flavor to any dish,” said Fraser. “So,  it’s just natural for me to add it to my favorite meal of the day-breakfast.”

For a quick breakfast that will keep you going all morning, Fraser  recommends spreading creamy avocados on whole grain toast, adding it to your  favorite smoothie or folding chunks of avocados into freshly scrambled eggs.
