Avocados are a nutrient-dense fruit with almost 20 vitamins, nutrients, and phytonutrients! They are an excellent source of the healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and, avocados are cholesterol-free. Our bodies need fats, they help absorb vitamins A and E as well as other essential nutrients.
Avocados contain vitamins C and E which are powerful antioxidants. They are an excellent source of niacin (B3), folate (B9), and B6 all of which help the body convert food to energy. Avocados also have anti-inflammatory compounds called phenolics. Inflammation is linked to many serious health conditions.
Personally, I think avocado goes with everything! However a great introduction to those who are not convinced is this roast potato and avocado salad. The feta cheese gives this recipe a bit of a zhing and is a healthier option than salad dressing. But, if you’re not a fan of feta, try cottage cheese or ricotta in its place.
