The main star in this recipe is, of course, avocados. Many would argue that this fruit is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. It’s rich in vitamins, minerals, monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. Avocados are easily accessible at any grocery store or market and extremely versatile as well. They can be added very simply on top of salads, used to add healthy fats to breakfast casseroles, used in savory meals like these lemon chicken avocado boats, added to smoothies for amazing creaminess, and even used in desserts.
Benefits of Avocados:
Due to their fatty acid composition, avocados are wonderful for heart health. The monounsaturated fat content helps to balance blood lipids and can help prevent hardening of the arteries. Avocados can also help lower overall cholesterol, reduce triglycerides, and increase HDL or “good cholesterol”.
One of the main components to good digestion is fiber and one serving of an avocado has close to 5 grams of soluble fiber. This helps balance gut bacteria, pull out toxins from the body, nourish the lining in the gut, and can improve bowel movements.
Avocados are rich in phytochemicals and antioxidants which help protect your eyes, keep skin looking healthy and youthful, reduce free radical damage from the environment, and can even help reduce the risk of cancer. The monounsaturated fats can help lower inflammation and protect against chronic diseases.
