This week we are featuring Edgar and Joes’ turkey avocado croissant and its nutritional benefits. This featured item is made with roasted turkey, avocado slices, tomato slices, red onions, lettuce, with sundried tomato mayo in a fresh croissant.
Remember, Edgar and Joes Cafe’s menu items are made fresh in-house at the Horton Street Location. All ingredients are fresh, and the cafe makes an effort to locally source as many of the ingredients as possible. Here are some of the nutritional benefits of the ingredients in this featured meal:
Turkey: a great lean source of protein, meaning all the muscle growth and repair benefits of protein with a low amount of dietary fat.
Avocado: known for its source of “healthy” fats, which are mono- and polyunsaturated fats. These healthy fats help your digestive system absorb fat-soluble vitamins (vitamin A, D, E and K!).
Tomato: high in vitamin C which helps immunity, healthy skin, and assists in your body’s energy metabolism - chemical reactions that convert food into fuel.
Red onions: a source of a B vitamin called folic acid, this is essential for helping your body generate new cells.
Get all these vitamins today with the turkey avocado croissant from Edgar and Joes.
