 The Fresh Summit

PMA Fresh Summit Anaheim 2014 @createdbydiane


I had the opportunity to go to the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit in Anaheim recently thank to the California Avocado Commission, have I mentioned lately how much I love being an ambassador for the California Avocado Commission? Well let me just tell you they are so extremely thoughtful. Each and every time I communicate with them, they are on top of things. They are so knowledgeable, I love hearing stories from them, what they are working on next and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunities they’ve opened up to me. I posted photos on Instagram while I was there if you want to take a look.

There were fruits and vegetables as far as the eye could see and some pretty flowers too. Lots and Lots of California Avocados and the sliders the California Avocado Commission served were so good, the line to get one never slowed down all day. California Avocados are in season from Spring through Fall, so we are at the end of the season, so stock up if you see them and take a look at this post on How to freeze Avocado them so you can enjoy their great taste until Spring.

    1. I’m sure you could, although I’ve never tried it. If you’ve substituted it before for nuts in recipes I think it would be fine.
