Celebrate National Avocado Day! Sailors Created Avocado Toast And More Fun Facts!

Celebrating National Avocado Day – July 31, 2021!


I’m late with a great celebration National Avocado Day was Saturday!

Here’s a delicious way to celebrate – by eating some Avocado!

While many of us know it only as the base for Guacamole, the mighty Avocado has so many other reasons to celebrate it:

For example, the Avocado is packed with so many healthy benefits!

Avocados are great for your heart, for your vision, for weight loss – and even help against cancer! Yes, this adorable green fruit has amazing health benefits and so much more!

The terrific website “Trees.com” has published an appreciation for the Avocado:

Did you know?

  • Avocado trees were first cultivated over 5,000 years ago

And what about this? If you thought you were the person behind the current “Avocado Toast” trend, think again!

  • European sailors were the first to start the avocado toast trend! They would spread it on a piece of bread – who knew?
  • Growing them helps balance the nitrates in the soil, which makes the soil more fertile for other plants

But even better – they taste amazing – especially as the greatest dip of all time: Guacamole!

Your Homemade Guacamole Recipe!

It’s the perfect dip to go with chips, crackers, breadsticks or even a finger! It’s easy and delicious to make – here’s just one of many Guacamole recipes to try:

  • 3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and mashed 
  • 1 lime, juiced  
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • ½ cup diced onion  
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 
  • 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced  
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic 
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (Optional)

The folks at Trees.com were excited to share this information nd I was happy to oblige!

You can see their full visual chart of “all things Avocado” by going to their website here: 


Of course, I have shared not only my love of the Avocado with you, but this unique recipe I made as well:

I made it. and let’s just say I need to work on my form a bit:
