Last week I shared that Publix and Produce for Kids have once again joined together to raise funds for local Feeding America® food banks and give Publix shoppers healthy meal solutions, recipes and tips. This is a great campaign that benefits so many and you can help by supporting the great brands who are participating. Just look for the Produce for Kids signs when you are shopping in the produce department. By supporting the brands with the Produce for Kids logo you’ll bring home delicious and healthy foods for your family plus you’ll help support local families and children in-need as well.
Why not pick up some delicious Avocados from Mexico – Mexican Hass Avocados? Besides being healthy, incredibly delicious and super versatile, your purchase is helping to feed local families!
Whether you chop it for a tasty salad, spread it on your morning toast or use it in a recipe you and your family will enjoy the taste and the great health benefits in that tasty little fruit!
You guys know that I am an avocado addict and eat them constantly as well as use them in a variety of recipes. If you need some recipe inspiration…here are a few ideas:
- Dark Chocolate Avocado Brownies
- Sensational Salsa Salmon
- Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas
- Guacamole Hummus
- Avocado Tuna Melt Sandwich Ring
- Grilled Lime Shrimp Tostadas
You can also pick up my most favorite onion of all time…RealSweet® Vidalia Onions! I grew up eating these and look forward to them coming in season each year. I spent the summers with my grandparents in South Georgia not too far where these onions are grown. Some form of that fabulous onion was on our table at every single meal…they are that good! There is nothing better than a good cucumber and onion salad. It always brings me back to my childhood on my grandparents farm. Guess what will be on my menu this week – YUM!
Grab a big bag and after you whip up a cucumber and onion salad you can also try these recipes too –
- Breakfast Tacos
- Made-Over Chicken & Wild Rice Casserole
- One-Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Bowls
- Grilled Vidalia Onions With Blue Cheese
- Creamy Fresh Tomato Basil Soup
I have more great news, there is also a great sweepstakes running where you could earn a $100 Publix gift card! They are giving out a big gift card each week during the campaign. Just head over to the Produce For Kids website to enter to enter weekly. Good luck everyone!
