Avocado Salad Recipe

A Nourishing Summertime Superfood Dish

256657Avocado: what a funny-looking fruit with dimpled-green skin and such abundant versatility in fresh and filling raw food recipes. Incredibly popular for its superfood properties, creamy texture and delicious flavor, avocados are bursting with 20 nutrient varieties and heart-healthy fats, and loaded with fiber, antioxidants and more potassium than bananas. According to the Journal of Nutrition, adding avocado to salad can increase your antioxidant absorption up to 15-fold!

All the more reason to try this hearty avocado salad, loaded with nutrition and dynamic flavor.

PRESERVATION TIP: Store avocados in your Marvel Refrigerator to retain freshness for up to a week.

Marvel’s Dynamic Cooling Technology precisely chills food at an even temperature, effectively halting the ripening process and preventing that unsightly (and very distasteful) browning. Want your avocado to ripen faster?  Leave them on your counter, or place in a brown paper bag to speed up the process.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats


An Easy Breakfast Idea Loaded with Nutritional Benefits

Simplify your morning routine without skipping that all-important first meal of the day – just let your refrigerator do most of the work!

Overnight oats are becoming a popular breakfast option for several reasons: it’s a one-dish meal that’s easy to make, delicious and packed with energy-sustaining nutritional benefits.

Why It’s the Healthier Choice

These raw, soaked oats are the cooler side of oatmeal, and a healthy upgrade from its breakfast counterpart. Overnight soaking acts much like a long cooking process, breaking down starches and phytic acid, making the meal easier for your body to digest and absorb. And, it’s higher in resistant starches which can help control insulin levels.

With a little preparation the night before, you’ll have a hearty and healthy breakfast ready to eat the next morning to satiate your hunger and satisfy those taste buds. It’s a perfect grab-and-go treat for picnics, too!

Here’s the recipe for this meal mashup, a wise way to start your day off right.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
