Why is good to eat avocado?
This tropical fruit is considered as one of the healthiest foods. Its characteristic is that unlike most of the fruits avocado is high in healthy fats. 100 g of this fruit contains about 160 calories and 77% of the calories in it are from fat. Because of this it is very nutritious.
Also to mention that doesn not contain any cholesterol and it is low in saturated fat. Beside this, avocado contains a lot of vitamins, minerals, fibers and antioxidants.
I am not a medical expert but read some of the benefits of frequent consumption of avocado: reduce total cholesterol levels, lower risk of metabolic syndrome, support healthy blood pressure levels. Interesting fact-avocado is good for eyes, it contains nutrients Lutein and Zeaxanthin which are important for eye health.
Another reason why avocado is one of the favorite and popular fruits is that is in group of weight loss foods. It is very often recommended in diets by nutritionists.
It is very easy to combine avocado with some other food. Personally I am not thrilled with its flavor, but I tried it with some salads and toasts and it was very tasty.
Recently I made avocado toast with salsa and I was very satisfy so I decided to share this recipe.
The ingredients you need are:
-four pieces of bread (toasted)
-two avocados (medium size)
-two cloves of garlic
-one small hot pepper
The process is very simple.
Mash avocado with fork and apply on toast.Finely chop remaining ingredients (tomato, garlic, hot pepper) and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with some olive oil, add some salt, pepper and chive (to taste). Stir the ingredients and apply over the avocado. Sprinkle with chia seeds and your delicious meal is ready. Enjoy!
