Summer is our favorite time of year, not only because we get to relax on the beach but also because it is the peak of avocado season! There are so many reasons why we love avocado. There seems to be endless health benefits to this “superfood.” Avocado is considered to be the perfect balance of protein and carbohydrates, keeping you full without packing on the pounds. The fruit can help maintain a healthy heart and even protect against certain cancers. Avocado can even help with your hygiene! Chock-full of vitamin A and antioxidants, avocado improves the health of skin, hair and nails. Eating avocado can even cure bad breath because it aides intestinal food decomposition!
Because avocado is such a perfect food for overall health, we want to eat it as much as we can! We highlight it in our refreshing Southwest Salad and adds a creamy touch to our Blackened Chicken Breast & Avocado Club! If you’re struggling with how to creatively incorporate avocado in your diet, these ideas may help. Avocado is a tasty and healthy alternative for mayonnaise. It is also a great additive to smoothies for added texture and thickness. Another delicious option is to spread avocado on toast in place of butter. Eating this superfood everyday will have you feeling super-great!
