National Avocado Day is Saturday, July 31, 2021. The consumption of avocados has doubled since 2005 and quadrupled since 2000. Avocados have heart healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins C, E and K. The ancient Aztecs used the fruit for skin masks, and the 20th century cosmetic industry uses them in creams, lotions and facial cleaners.
