Avocados are so vital for continuing good health.
They are one of those foods that some love, some just stay away from. On the other hand, some love guacamole, but never ever touch avocados.
What you may not realize is that even if you do not love them, they love you!
Avocados are considered to be berries containing one large seed, which puts them in the fruit family. If you store them with either a banana or an apple, they’ll ripen quicker. If you want to stop the ripening process, just keep them in the refrigerator.
They are not limited to certain seasons, but are readily available all year long.
There are so many reasons why this is considered one of nature’s most important foods for your continuing health and wellness!
♥ Provides you with good amounts of Vitamin K, folate, Vitamins C, B5, B6, E, and potassium. Also contains small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).
♥ Furnish heart-healthy Monounsaturated Fatty Acids – the fats found in olive oil.
♥ Loaded with fiber.
♥ The beneficial fats help your system to absorb many other vitamins and minerals.
♥ Loaded with powerful anti-oxidants which help protect your eyes.
♥ Did you know that avocado pits are also full of goodness for your system? I crush them and add them to my green tea. I boil them right with the water. They’re very high in vitamin C and also contain beneficial antioxidants and soluble fiber.
Many of the nutrients mentioned above are missing from our daily diets.
This becomes a good reason to incorporate avocados into our daily diets.
Besides the delicious guacamole, there are many ways to add these miracles from nature into your daily regimen. Avocado pudding is a luscious healthy dessert. Sliced avocado looks so appetizing on your lunch or dinner plate and avocado chunks make a delicious addition to salads. Add them to salsa or just scoop them out of the shell and eat them plain! And don’t forget about avocado toast.
♥ The fiber helps to feed the friendly gut bacteria in your intestine, which is extremely important for optimal body function.
♥ Help to Lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels.
♥ The beneficial fat contained in avocados helps your system to absorb the nutrients found in other plant foods.
♥ The nutrients contained therein can help improve eye health over the long run.
♥ They contain more potassium than bananas.
I hope you will take into consideration the above reasons why avocados should be part of your diet at least three to four times a week.
This is another baby step in your continuing journey to find good solid health and wellness.
Take advantage of these little changes you can do every single day of your life.
Because you will feel so on top of the world, this is how you will love life!
