Why I am avo-crazy:
Eating healthy fats, such as avocados, is so important for your health. From balancing hormones, to nourishing your hair & skin, to keeping your blood sugars balanced, disease prevention and weight management – it’s healthy fats we have to thank.
Of all the fats in avocado, about 75% are unsaturated monounsaturated & polyunsaturated fats. These guys are the super stars for healthy hearts, hormones, and blood sugars.
Just a single avo has 14 grams of gut-friendly fibre.
This makes avocado one of your friends for – healthy digestion, weight management, increased satiety & protection against type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Yes!
See ya later sugar! Although avocados are a fruit, they contain less sugar per gram than any other serving of fruit!
Avocados actually help the body to better absorb nutrients (known as fat-soluble nutrients) in other foods. Some of the nutrients that avo’s help to boost are Vitamin A, D, E, K & even some antioxidents.
Fun fact: tomatoes are packed with lycopene & vitamin A – both nutrients that avocado helps to boost. Avo & salsa anyone??
Avocados are super nutrient dense, containing around 20 different vitamins, minerals & phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds that we all should be having daily for health from our cells to our whole body.
