THE AVOCADO SHORTAGE IS REAL + We just received word from our produce suppliers that there will continue to be an avocado shortage over the next couple weeks + This is due to: 1) A harvest worker strike in Mexico 2) The end of California and Peruvian harvest seasons 3) The fact that Californians LOVE avocados 🥑 + Kitava is down to our last couple cases, and the current estimate is 10 days before we can get restocked with avocados. However, it may take longer depending on how quickly the worker strike is resolved + We're doing our best to come up with avocado alternatives for any relevant dishes, so please be patient and understanding if your Cuban Bowl, Baja Bowl, or Salad arrives sans our favorite green fruit over the next couple weeks 😊

Kitava co-founder Jeff Nobbs on a sustainable organic palm fruit farm in Ecuador, courtesy of @naturalhabitatsgroup & @palmdoneright + LINK IN BIO - Learn why the fried food we serve at Kitava is healthy for you AND the environment + Hint: It has something to do with the cooking oil we use + While we're on the topic, let's talk about "vegetable oils" + Sounds pretty healthy right? + Not quite. Most vegetable oil is made from soybeans, a factory farmed monocrop. They're almost always grown with pesticides & chemicals, have questionable nutritional value, and don't produce oil naturally + Getting oil from a soybean requires using extremely high heat & chemicals. We're left with a highly unstable oil from mostly polyunsaturated fatty acids, that's likely already rancid by the time it's packaged and shipped to your local restaurant + This oil is labeled "vegetable" oil, and used to cook everything from steaks, omelettes, and sauted veggies, to deep fried donuts, french fries, and chicken nuggets + During high heat cooking, this oil has no chance. It's almost certainly rancid by the time you eat your food, which can wreak havoc on your body + This same process is true for canola, peanut, corn, safflower, sunflower, grapeseed, & rice bran oils + In a perfect world, we should NEVER consume these oils + Unfortunately, 99.999% of restaurants & food service businesses use some form of "vegetable oil" in their cooking. It's literally killing people, and they have no idea, simply because we aren't educated about how toxic these unnatural oils are for our bodies + Luckily, there IS a better way 😀☀️ + Use common sense & embrace fats from NATURAL sources. Cooking requires heat-stable oils, which comes from saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids + What foods contain stable fats? Foods that produce oil naturally + Coconuts + Olives + Avocados + Macadamia Nuts + We take our our responsibility to serve health-promoting food seriously, down to the oils we use + This is no marketing claim. It's a serious issue more restaurants should treat as such + In our kitchen we cook with: + Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Veronica Foods + Organic Palm Fruit Oil + Coconut Oil
