Highlight on Avocados





If you have been following me for awhile you know how much I love avocados. They are delicious and quite versatile. Not only that, but they are nutrient dense!


Avocados contain high levels of:

-pantothenic acid

-fiber

-vitamin K

-copper

-folate

-vitamin B6

-vitamin E

-vitamin C

-and more!

AND one of the main reasons I love avocados is due to their high healthy fat content! Healthy fats are key for so many basic functions in your body and they are needed to assimilate fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, K


Because they are so nutrient dense they support cardiovascular, skin, eye, immune, and digestive health as well as weight loss.


One downside is that they are not grown in Canada so be mindful of that. AND they go bad very quickly so try to only buy as much as you are going to use right away. However, you can now buy frozen avocado which is a great alternative for smoothies.
