As for the avocado, using one whole avocado is recommended here, and it can be diced, sliced, or mashed.

Option 2: Turkey and Pasta

DeCecco Pasta and Ragu Pasta Sauce are perfect additions to the turkey, adding in flavor and fun to this Italian-inspired cuisine. To get your greens in, we suggest purchasing Green Giant Vegetables this week that can be found in the refrigerated produce section. We carry a variety of different Green Giant Vegetables, including brussel sprouts and green beans. These bags are microwavable, and only take three minutes to cook. Season with salt, garlic salt, or pepper.

Option 3: Avocado Toast with Oranges

2 Avocados
