Get ready for a healthier but delicious New Year with Avocados from Mexico! Last week I attended an event with celebrity chef and TV host Maggie Jimenez. Maggie was on hand to tell us all about the Échale Challenge from Avocados from Mexico. The purpose behind the challenge is to get to our community of families and friends to have a more energetic, fulfilling and flavorful healthy life!
I invited several of my friends and followers to join me at MAPS Studio in Miami to learn more about the Échale Challenge. We are also treated to a live cooking demonstration where Maggie provided tips and advice for healthier living to help motivate our community to participate and take part in the 21-day Échale Challenge. The pre-challenge began with sampling dish after dish created with Avocados from Mexico. They included Churrasco, Ceviche, Guacamole and even some Avocado gelato! To wash it all down we enjoyed some Avocado based smoothies, some even included a little extra pep for our step.
I sampled all the delicious dishes, and by far was totally surprised by the Avocado Gelato, who knew?. Em had a blast learning about healthy eating with our friends from Los Tweens (and “borrowing” all the grapes.) Don’t forget to check out my very own yummy, quick and easy guacamole recipe! I was able to sneak a few avocados home with me, which the girls devoured later that evening and the next morning. Psssttt…Avocados From Mexico, if you are reading this, SEND MORE!! #SOS
While I know not everyone was able to make it out to the event, that doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the Échale Challenge for your chance to win weekly prizes plus a grand prize of $10,000. That’s right…Delicious and healthy Avocados from Mexico are putting you to the challenge which begins February 9, 2015 and will award most active participants on social media who show how they incorporate more exercise, fruits and vegetables to their diets with superb prizes, including the weekly prizes and grand prize of $10,000. This challenge is a fun and rewarding way to put the passion back into your and your family’s lifestyle.
