Avocado: Super Food or Super Fad?

Avocado: Super Food or Super Fad?

Today it seems that almost every place you eat has an item advertised with Avocado as a selling point.

In fact, avocado is very good for you, but do not think that a little of this fruit (yes, it is a fruit, not a vegetable) will immediately make a Big Mac healthy. It’s a super food, but it’s not green gold, so a side

of guacamole at Chipotle does not erase the 1,000 calorie burrito you just ate. There just isn’t an ingredient that can do that, but it obviously increases the nutritional value of the food you add it to.

One reason some people avoid avocados is because of their high fat content, but these are good fats

that your body needs to function.

vitamins and minerals super food

This really is a super food that can supply a lot of vitamins and minerals. Just an avocado has your

daily value for fiber, vitamin E and B vitamins! There are also a large number of antioxidants that

are good immune boosters. It is a perfect food for a pregnant woman to add to her diet due to the content of folic acid and vitamin B6, which are necessary for a healthy fetal development, and B6

helps relieve morning sickness. So pregnant women out there; do not feel guilty about eating chips

and guacamole, be proud! Another benefit of this superfood is that it has a hard protective skin that keeps most pesticides out of the meat. so buying organic avocados is not really necessary. Now that

you know the health benefits, you can see that it is not a ‘super dish’ and it is a rare treat that is

good for both your taste buds and your body. Whether you are an avocado aficionado or a

newfound lover, keep these health benefits in mind by adding it to your diet.

Fresh summer salad super food

Personally, I love adding avocado to almost any dish, from a fresh summer salad food, to replacing

it with bacon in a BLT or just plain guacamole. You really can not go wrong as long as the flesh

of the fruit is freshly cut, just know that after a day or two it will start to turn brown if you do

not cover it. Fresh green slices can make almost any food look appetizing as we eat with our

eyes first; so be sure to consume it quickly (though it should not be a problem).
