Avocados are the millennial fruit of choice, if you think about it. Avocado toast
became an Instagram darling for a while. When you scroll through your feed, you'll see the fruit as a beach-side shake or even in a #fitspo diet post.
The popularity of the avocado can perhaps be attributed to how diverse it is. You
can add it on to any salad for extra heft. It can also be a desert, with either honey or a sprinkling of sugar. It can be treated as a savory appetizer with some olive oil. It's even hailed as “green butter”, which gives you a hint on how decadent it can be.
Guacamole is always a dish that comes to mind when you think of avocados. But
there you can also serve it with sushi. You can also blend into a shake with
chocolate syrup as they do in Indonesia. Serve on top of a baguette with black
olives for an afternoon snack. But when all else fails, you can always eat it on its own.
If you're observing a high fat, low carb diet, an avocado should be part of your
daily meals. It has contains healthy fats and provides lots of energy.
It doesn't hurt that an avocado is pretty too. The unique green color is friendly to the eyes. It'a also friendly to the body. An avocado is packed with many vitamins along with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. Add to this how it has a good amount of phytosterols and carotenoids. These all contribute to make you look and feel better.
Avocado oil is a treasure as well. It's a favorite in the culinary world but it's also revered for its skin soothing properties in the beauty industry.
So what are you waiting for? Eat an avocado today, your way!
