The Benefits of Avocados

This week I’d like to share with you one of my most favorite foods. I try to incorporate this item into my meals at least once a day to five times per week, and even though I recommend eating local and seasonal, this little piece of food heaven breaks this rule.


This powerhouse ingredient not only tastes delicious, but it’s nutrient dense and full of health benefits!

  • Promotes cardiovascular health
  • Stacked with “anti-inflammatory” properties including:
    · Antioxidants; vitamin C and vitamin E
    · Good fats; omega-3
    · Used in various forms of arthritis treatment as a mainstay in patients’ diets.
  • Promotes optimal absorption of carotenoids (fat-soluble phyto-nutrients that naturally occur in plants)
  • Regulates blood sugar levels, due to its low sugar, low carb and high fiber makeup
  • Anti-cancer benefits!

Avocados are also quite versatile. Use them for baking (adds moisture), in smoothies, salsa or any recipe that could benefit from that lovely, nutritious and rich texture.
