Avocado: the unknown healthy fruit

Post by UpperDiet »

The avocado is a fruit that is eaten very little. Perhaps because it is a relatively expensive fruit in comparison to other fruits. Many people do not even know what an avocado looks like, let alone know how easy it is to use in food. That's a shame because it is a very healthy fruit that definitely fits within a healthy lifestyle and also within a diet.

Nutrients and health benefits
Often, the avocado is avoided because of its high fat content. However, these are unsaturated fatty acids that help lower cholesterol and which only promote health. The avocado is packed with antioxidants, lutein, beta-carotene and vitamin E. Avocados help the body in addition, in the absorption of other nutrients from other foods. The mineral potassium leads to lower blood pressure.

The avocado prevents blood sugar fluctuations which prevent obesity. The insulin level remains the same which will make a feeling of hunger less likely to occur. It is the most protein-rich fruit, which can very well contribute to losing weight.

Another reason why the avocado often is avoided is the high amount of calories. 100 grams of avocado contains 188 calories, 18.1 grams fat, 2.6 grams of protein and 6.4 grams of fiber.

Where to buy?
The avocado is, contrary to popular belief, easy to obtain. In almost all supermarkets. Also on the market and foreign stores the avocado is almost always to be found.

How do you eat a avocado?
Many people do not know how best to handle an avocado. The fruit can be eaten on bread in the form of guacamole, instead of mayonnaise or meat easily by any salad. Guacamole is better by spoon to mash the avocado and then add some salt, pepper, onion and tomato. Mix it all together and a delicious variation on bread arises. On the internet, many recipes can be found.
