Our Favourite 7 Avocado Recipes
Posted in: RECIPE
Avocado was not dubbed a superfood for nothing. This green fruit contains more healthy fats than most healthy carbohydrate-loaded fruits you know. Per 100 grams of serving, it contains 15 grams of healthy fats, 9 grams of carbs (7 grams of fiber!), and 2 grams of protein. It also contains anti- oxidants, caretonoids, and vitamins that promote good skin and hair health, which is why we see it a lot on skin and hair products. But avocado makes for a really great food staple—sometimes leaning towards the healthy, comfort food end of the spectrum—and it is one of those foods versatile enough to have any time of the day. Here are 7 excuses to have it:
