I love avocados for so many reasons, and there’s a reason why they are nicknamed ‘God’s Butter’.
First and foremost, they’re delicious. They’re good enough to slice and eat as a snack with some healthy sea salt, and if you’re an avocado fan, I don’t have to tell you how they turn any meal from so-so to so appealing.
They’re also full of healthy Omega 9 fats that keep you feeling full.
Omega-9 fatty acid is a monounsaturated fat that is also known as oleic acid. It is not considered an essential fatty acid (like Omega 3s and 6s) because of our body’s ability to produce it in small amounts.
To get the amazing health benefits from these Omega 9 fatty acids, supplementing your daily diet with foods like avocados is so important.
Avocados are good for the brain, heart, skin, hair, and even prevent signs of aging. They are high in soluble fiber, which helps lower cholesterol levels and maintain stable blood sugar levels.
Avocados are high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that regulates inflammation. They also provide you with significant amounts of the essential alkaline minerals such as potassium and magnesium
They’re also high on the list of alkaline forming food.
This recipe is perfect for the on-the-go lifestyle because they’re cool (no cooking required!), flavorful, healthy, and ready in minutes.
My wife and I often make this when we want a fast dinner. Try it and I think you’ll find you want to do the same at least once a week until the weather turns cold.
