Avocados are one of my favorite foods and I would add them to everything, if given the chance!! Which is why I was SO excited to hear Bruegger’s Bagels’ latest announcement!
With avocado season in full swing (and lasting through September), Bruegger’s Bagels has added the good-for-you fruit to its menu. For just 75¢, customers can add avocado to bagels, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads and even soup – a small price to pay for all the health benefits of the California crop, including nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
Bruegger’s originally brought in avocados for its new summer menu item, the California Roll Smoked Salmon Sandwich, served on a sesame bagel with cucumber, smoked salmon, avocado and wasabi cream cheese, but Bruegger’s executive chef, Philip Smith also suggests the in-season item as a nutritious addition to some of the chain’s favorite breakfast and lunch options— with easy imitation for home.
Thanks to Bruegger’s Bagels, you can now add avocados, which pack 4 grams of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat (which lowers cholesterol), 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein per ounce into your daily diet easily! If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for Breugger’s News emails and get a coupon for a FREE Bagel & Cream Cheese!
