5 Reasons You Shouldn’t Avoid Eating Avocados
We’ve all heard the age old quote, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Now we say, “an avocado a day keeps the doctor away, forever!” and here are 5 reasons why
1. Avocados Will Not Make You Fat
Fast food, chips, soda, white bread, those are all things that will make you fat, avocados…not so much. Avocados contain monounsaturated fat and, like olive oil, a high preponderance of oleic acid – this is healthy fat and beautifying oil. Oleic acid is gaining a reputation (through the Mediterranean Diet) as helping to keep us slim as we age. Oleic acid is also believed to decrease our chances of developing heart disease.
2. Curbs Hunger
If you find yourself constantly snacking, avocados can help change that. Studies have shown that meals that include avocados and other healthy fats cause you to feel full, taking away the need to eat more. Because they consist mostly of healthy fatty acids, they produce a blood-sugar, friendly, ketogenic effect. So the next time you reach for a bag of chips, go for the avocado instead
3. Packed With Nutrients
You already know that avocados are good for us, but, what’s actually inside of it that makes it such a healthy treat. Well, for starters, there are typically over 14 minerals packed inside each one.
4. Can Be Added To Many Meals
Avocados are awesome because they can be used to turn ordinary meals into wonderful meals. Mash up some avocados and boom, you’ve got guacamole. Throw a few avocado slices on some hempseed or chia-seed gluten-free bread or raw cracker and you have a tasty snack. You can place avocados on top of almost any food.
5. Long-Term Health
So not only do avocados have tons of nutrients and are very delicious, but they also will benefit your health in the long run. Those healthy fats will help keep your blood sugar levels in check, your good cholesterol at optimum levels and can neutralize inflammation in the brain and body all while being an excellent energy source.
