I’ve been doing some (delicious) experimenting with avocados lately.
The health benefits of avocado are wonderful ones: lots of fiber, potassium, vitamins C,K, folate and B6 so they are something that I like to make sure I’m eating on a regular basis and I find it can satisfy me in a way similar to animal protein. It is high in monounsaturated fat but – don’t fear the fat! Monounsaturated fats can help lower blood cholesterol.
Favorite Ways to Eat Avocado
- chopped and sprinkled on salads
- blended in smoothie (makes it extra creamy)
- smashed, and used as a spread on sandwiches, wraps, bread, etc.
- guacamole – probably my favorite!
How else can I add avocado to my meals?
