30 healthy avocado recipes

Avocado healthy recipes

Time to share some healthy avocado recipes. Do you like avocados?

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one serving (one-fifth of an avocado, approximately 40 grams) contains:

  • 64 calories
  • almost 6 grams of fat
  • 3.4 grams of carbohydrate
  • less than a gram of sugar
  • almost 3 grams of fiber

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Heart health, Lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels

Again, avocado is a high fat food. But they don’t just contain any fat… the majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid. This is a monounsaturated fatty acid. Oleic acid has been linked to reduced inflammation. Avocados may help protect against heart disease and diabetes.

Avocados can:

  • Reduce total cholesterol levels significantly.
  • Reduce blood triglycerides by up to 20%.
  • Lower LDL cholesterol by up to 22%.
  • Increase HDL (the “good”) cholesterol by up to 11%.

Osteoporosis prevention

 

Improved digestion

Despite its creamy texture, an avocado is actually high in fiber.

Eating foods with natural fiber can help prevent constipation, maintain a healthy digestive tract, and lower the risk of colon cancer.

Antimicrobial action

Avocados contain substances that have antimicrobial activity, particularly against Escherichia coli, a leading cause of food poisoning.

Help You Lose Weight

Including avocados in your diet could help you naturally eat fewer calories and have an easier time sticking to a healthy diet. Adding avocados to meals makes people more satiated (full) and reduces the desire to eat for many hours, compared to a similar meal without avocados. Avocados are high in fiber, and very low in carbs, two attributes that should also help promote weight loss.
