How we benefit from avocados

On the Mediterranean you can find avocados almost all year long. Here in Canada i find it all year long too, but it comes from warmer countries.

I eat avocados everyday; alone with some salt and olive oil, in salads, with quinoa, tofu, as a spread instead of butter…

Avocados are rich in protein, fiber and many other nutrients. It also increases the absorption rate of nutrients.

-Avocados like olive oil, are high in oleic acid, which has been shown to prevent breast cancer in numerous studies.

-One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. Studies show that people who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower incidence of heart disease than others.

-Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintain overall health.

-Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats, which help control triglycerides in the bloodstream, lower blood cholesterol and control diabetes.

-A typical avocado contains soluble and insoluble fiber; that alone makes it very powerful. Insoluble fiber is great at cleaning out your bowels, you will reduce your chance of being constipated and lesser the chance of getting colorectal cancer.

Soluble fiber on the other hand is great for appetite control.

-Eating avocados will give you a feeling that your belly is full. Therefore, it reduces your food intake, the temptation to take sugars and saturated fats.

Are avocados an important part of your diet? If not, add it to your daily intake and try feeling the difference!
