Why Eat Avocado

I grew up eating a lot of avocados they are delicious and creamy, In fact, the avocado was the seasonal butter for us back then. We had no choice but to like Avocado as young kids. Nowadays kids are given too much choice (including my kids) and they don’t always end up making the right nutritious food choices. Avocados are a part of wholesome food group and you can read more here.

 

Avocado

Avocado is a fat dominant food which means it slows down digestion when ingested, which is a good thing to have because it keeps your blood sugar stable and reduces hunger. Avocado contains monosaturated fatty and polyunsaturated fatty acids which help to promote a healthy blood lipid profile.“Studies have found that people who consume avocados as part of a balanced healthy diet have smaller waist circumference and are less likely to overeat and are more successful in losing weight and maintaining lost weight.”

The antioxidants, amino acids  and essential oils  found in avocados can help

  • repair damaged hair,
  • moisturize dry skin, and may even
  • reduce wrinkles

Avocado Healthy Options

Avocado on Toast

Avocado on Toast by far the best meal to keep you fuller for longer.

Eggs are protein dominant and get digested faster than fats, so it is a good idea to combine them with
avocado (protein, fat) to keep you fuller for longer. Eggs and Avocado are also my favorite. Using boiled eggs increases the nutrition value of this meal to 100%.

Avocado and Tomato

creamed beets and avocado

I quite like this recipe of creamed beets, avocado, and tomato. I use coconut cream to mix with the mashed beets. It’s delicious. Lazy days meals. I eat this for dinner sometimes very light yet filling and full of nutrients. Ps if you don’t like beets you can use sour cream or greek yogurt as the spread. Avocados are versatile you can use them with most foods because of fo their creaminess.

If your goal is to lose weight or maintain or gain weight these foods combinations with avocado you can never go wrong. try different options and enjoy the Avocados.

    I love avocados and I have been feeding them to my little boy since he was 6 months old. Great to know they are so good for you. My daughter isn’t so keen but I have been making smoothies for her with banana, coconut oil, spinach, chia seeds and peanut butter. Call it dinosaur juice and it goes down a treat
