Yo Ho Ho, Avocado! (Hey, Claremore, It’s GOOD for You!)

avocadoAVOCADO!! 

How do you like to eat your avocado? I used to never eat it, but now seek it out about once a week or so… to put on a salad, spread on a sandwich, as guacamole. What’s your favorite recipe with avocado?

There are a number of great reasons and health benefits to eating this unique type of fruit (according to Authority Nutrition):
Avocados are:
1. Incredibly nutritious
2. Contains more potassium than bananas
3. Loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids
4. Loaded with fiber
5. Can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
6. People who eat avocado tend to be healthier
7. That fat in them can help absorb nutrients from plant foods
8. Loaded with powerful antioxidants that can protect the eyes
9. May help prevent cancer
10. The extract may help relieve symptoms of arthritis
11. Eating avocado may help you lose weight
12. It’s delicious and easy to incorporate in the diet
