It’s the 21st Century!! It is possible to have food that is tasty and healthy.
Yes, that’s right.
How do you ask?
I have just one word for you, well, not just a word, a fruit — Avocado.
Coincidence? Not at all.
Well, of course, you have heard of it; you also might have tried it. Well, after having read this article, you will fall in love with it.
Please don’t take our words for it; read it with your own eyes!
Healthy Is A Seven Letter Word, So Is Avocado.
Why is the avocado hype so real? Why do fitness freaks swear by avocado? Why do stars never go a day without avocado?
Simply put, avocado is that good, that’s why.
If I were to invent a multivitamin pill, I’d name it avocado. It is an invincible powerhouse of Vitamin A, B5, B6, C, E, and K. I didn’t even know that these many vitamins existed.
Avocado is full of fats that help you absorb nutrients from other foods. Easily absorb Vitamin A,D, E and K with avocados.
No wonder I call avocado the A to Z of nutrition.
Avocado consists of fats that don’t ever make you fat, fibres that keep you full, and carbs that keep you lean.
Sounds too good to be true, but for once, it actually is.
Avocado is the apple for your eyes. It is loaded with antioxidants that are beneficial to your eyes. High amounts of Vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin help maintain good eyesight, night vision and minimise damage from ultraviolet light.
Better than Banana by miles. Avocados are very high in potassium. One hundred grams of avocado contains 14% of the daily recommended potassium intake, whereas bananas only have 10.
Call your lover Avocado because it cares for your heart.
Avocado consists of antioxidants and monounsaturated fats that reduce the risk of stroke and keep your heart healthy. Avocado regulates LDL and HDL cholesterol levels and blood triglycerides.
I’ll stop singing praises of avocado now and start spilling avocado delicacies whose praise you will be singing everywhere you go!
