Why I Love Avocado & You Should Too!

If you aren’t totally nuts about the avocado yet, I recommend you to step outside your cooking routine and give this versatile, nutritious, creamy and uniquely delicious fruit a chance. At the end of my post, I promise, you will run to get your avocado stock at the veggie market down your road!

Health Benefits of Avocado.

Avocados are well-known for their excellent healthy monounsaturated fats that protect your heart, but they’re also high in many other nutrients aside from fat.

  1. Never fear the fat in avocados either. They help lower bad cholesterol in the body and prevent the absorption of harmful fats.
  2. Plus, calories and fat from healthy plant-based foods are much higher quality foods than processed foods and animal products higher in calories and fats.
  3. Avocados have been linked to a reduced risk for heart disease, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and have been found helpful for maintaining a healthy body weight and blood sugar levels. The delicious fruit even has specific phytonutrients that have been linked to preventing cancer and lowering stress.

Remember, quality over quantity – your body knows the difference!

How to use Avocado in Your Kitchen

There are so many ways you can use this fruit. Avocados make a great snack raw with a little salt or nut cheese, are the main ingredient in guacamole, and the perfect addition to make salads decadent and filling. But they’re also quite useful in cooking.

BAKED

Seared or grilled avocados are a treat! They’re also wonderful on pizzas, even instead of the cheese, and mashed or sliced into casseroles. Get started with a Caesar Salad Pizza or a Breakfast Tortilla Pesto Pizza.

PAN FRIED

Wonderful in stir fries, especially with kale and tempeh, avocado minimizes the need for oil in cooking. You can even grill or bake them before tossing them on a bed of greens for a warm, not-so-raw salad, soothing for the winter months.

SOUPS

Raw, blended soups are super creamy with avocado, but lighter than they would be with cashews. We love gazpacho-style cold soups with green tomatoes or cucumbers, but there are a lot more unique options, as well. Try this Raw Carrot Avocado Soup or Raw Peas and Mint Avocado Soup.

SMOOTHIES

Green and fruit smoothies are wonderful with avocados, but most of all we enjoy the fluffiness of a smoothie with avos, which is why they’re so perfect for chocolate mousse. Simply, with cocoa powder, with or without bananas, a dash of sweetener, perhaps some cinnamon, and cayenne or espresso powder for zest, chocolate mousse is the perfect dessert for a health-conscious, time-pressed chocolate lover.

DRESSINGS

As an alternative to just chopping up avocados for salads, they can also be turned into a dressing for the whole salad. They even do a wonderful job of dressing up pasta and whole grains. Mix into a tahini dressing, or with lemon or cucumber. Try it on a Raw Zucchini Pasta and Creamy Avocado Cucumber Sauce and a Mesquite Avocado-Kale Salad.
