Health Benefits of Avocado 

I have had an obsession with avocados lately. I put them in everything: salad, quinoa, pasta, and even in smoothies for extra healthy fats! I love the usual guacamole, but there are so many more things you can do with them.

Not only are avocados delicious, they have so many amazing health benefits!

  • Lowers inflammation
  • High in potassium
  • Improves nutrient absorption
  • High fiber, aids in digestion
  • Reduces LDL (bad cholesterol) and raises HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Regulates blood sugar levels
  • Rich in folate and vitamin K
  • Loaded with heart healthy monounsaturated fats
  • Promotes healthy bones
  • Balances hormones
  • Moisurizes skin

I made some delicious sushi and toast the other day featuring this glorious fruit.
