If you’re a fitness-fanatic like me then you are sure to look after your body by exercising regularly. However, maintaining a toned and healthy physique also comes down to what you eat; plenty of antioxidant rich foods, fruits and vegetables all help you to manage your weight, improve your skin, keep up your energy levels and provide overall wellness.
If you’re anything like me then you’re much more likely to be found working out at the gym after work and making yourself a healthy dinner, rather than relaxing at home with the TV on or visiting http://www.foxybingo.com/ on your laptop and eating takeout (Am I the only one who has parents who gamble? Both my mom and step-dad are huge poker players and typically visit Vegas twice a year!)
Avocado is one of the tastiest and highly nutritious superfoods out there. If your an avocado lover like me than I suggest you give my edamame guacamole a try. You won’t regret it I promise!
Below are just a few great reasons why you should incorporate more avocado into your diet:
1 – It’s thought that certain compounds in avocados are able to seek out pre-cancerous and cancerous oral cells and destroy them.
2 – Avocados are high in oleic acid, which has been shown to prevent breast cancer in numerous studies.
3 – Rich in carotenoid lutein, avocados protects the eyes against macular degeneration.
4 – These tasty fruits are also high in beta-sitosterol which can help to lower your cholesterol.
5 – Eating just one cup of this superfood provides your entire daily allowance of folate. In addition, vitamin E, monounsaturated fats and glutathione found in avocados are all great for your heart.
6 – Did you know that avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E? In addition, when consumed with a meal, avocados help to absorb five times more nutrients.
