As Thanksgiving approaches, we couldn’t be more excited. Each year, we look forward to this holiday because it gives us the opportunity to give thanks and spend time with family while, of course, eating delicious food. However, it’s very easy to lose sight of eating healthfully during this gluttonous holiday, which is why we incorporate our Extra Virgin Avocado Oils in every way possible. To keep your dishes lighter this Thanksgiving, rid your meal of canola and olive oil and utilize avocado oil instead. Need some inspiration? Here are three ways to work avocado oil into your Thanksgiving feast:
While many recipes recommend coating your turkey with canola oil, this can make the turkey full of hydrogenated oil, which is not good for your health. Using avocado oil will not only create a delicious and juicy turkey, but will also leave you feeling light so you can enjoy that delicious pecan pie without feel guilty. You can even deep-fry your turkey in avocado oil!
Will you be cooking carrots, Brussels sprouts or any other vegetable side dishes this Thanksgiving? Choosing to toss your vegetables in avocado oil will taste better than using olive or canola oil. Need some recipe ideas? Check out our Vanilla Roasted Carrots, Stuffed Tomatoes with Fresh Herbs or our Leek and Feta Fritters!
After you’ve recovered from the delectable turkey and tasty side dishes, dessert will be waiting for you. And with its light flavor, avocado oil is the perfect oil to use when baking pies, cakes and other sweet treats. Try our delicious Avocado Oil Cake with Fresh Berry Compote – it certainly does not disappoint!
