I Heart Avocados

Avocado-Recipes

Maybe it was the April Vegan Challenge, maybe it was just always the case, but I’m in the middle of a whirlwind love of avocados right now.  I find them versatile to use, highly nutritious and (strangely) one of my healthy comfort foods.  Their rich quality makes them a delight to add to anything!

I wanted to share this awesome post from Fitsugar that highlights nine awesome recipes for avocados.  I think I’ve tried all of these at least once, which is why I was so impressed to see Lizzie Fuhr write a super smart nutrition article that illustrated the diverse and delicious ways avocados can be prepared.

    I find I’m loving them too but it still scares my husband that I’m eating them to lose weight when they are so high in fat

      Hi Sarah!

      Great question! It’s true that saturated fat (animal sources, processed food) will not help but good fats/health fats are essential to help weight loss by increasing satiation and feeding the body what it needs for energy and hormonal needs. Check out this article, it’s a great review of this: http://www.canadianliving.com/health/prevention/eating_fat_to_lose_fat_2.php
