Foodie Friday: Avocados

If you know me, then you know I love avocados. I grew up drinking avocado milkshakes whenever they were in season and I still buy one every time I’m at a Vietnamese restaurant in hopes it’ll taste as good as my childhood version (so far, no beuno). I also visit a little gelato place in Toronto that carries avocado gelato that somehow made it into my weekly diet… 😉

Did you know that avocados are high in fibre and rich in healthy monounsaturated fats? They contain a bunch of running essential nutrients such as potassium, cooper, zinc, vitamin C, E, K, and folate. Avocados help keeps you feeling full, boost heart health, and decrease inflammation. When in season, I try to incorporate an avocado a day. Seriously, what more can you ask for? The only downside is that one avocado usually runs around 200-250 calories. But as long as you’re careful, it shouldn’t be too hard to add one of these nutrient packed fruit into your diet! Below is some of my favourite ways to get my avocado game on.

  1. oh i am bookmarking this. I haven’t met an avocado didn’t like yet 😉 Another tip. I use it on most smoothies, especially milk based ones. It gives it a creamy consistency without the fat and calories from real cream!
