Avocados are the new favorite addition to any meal. This nutrient rich fruit can take a lettuce salad or a sandwich to the next level of flavor and satisfaction. The reason behind avocados rise, and decline years ago, is related to its fat content. Avocados are well known for being higher in fat, which is entirely true. However, most of the fat content avocados offer is monounsaturated fat, this particular type of fat helps lower your risk for cardiovascular disease. Avocados also have a unique ability to help increase the absorption of vital nutrients in your body.
If you haven’t joined the bandwagon of increasing your avocado consumption, it might be a good choice to consider. Avocado toast, sliced avocado on a salad and avocado pesto are my favorite ways to incorporate this super food. In fact I even chose avocado to be the first food I introduced to my little girl when she was able to start enjoying solid food.
