3 Healthy Stuffed Avocado Recipes You Should Try

The avocado, this strange looking fruit, is actually one of the best foods you can add to your diet and one of my favorite foods.

Health Benefits Of Avocado

1. Abundant In Nutrients

They are packed with nutrients and heart-healthy compounds. They include over 20 different vitamins and minerals. Here are some of the most abundant nutrients in a single 100 gram serving of avocado.

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA
  • Folate: 20% of the RDA
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA
  • Potassium: 14% of the RDA
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA

Plus, they have trace amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, vitamin A, B2 and B3.

2. Loaded With Fiber

Fiber is indigestible plant matter than helps weight loss and reduces blood sugar spikes. There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber helps promote good gut bacteria and reduces cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. Insoluble fiber found in seeds and skins of fruit helps in weight loss, keeping your bowels regular and improving bowel-related health problems like constipation and IBS.


3. Heart Healthy

Heart disease is prevalent in today’s society and the leading cause of death in the world. Eating avocados helps to lower LDL (the bad cholesterol), blood triglycerides and helps to raise HDL (the good cholesterol). They also contain monounsaturated fatty acids which help to lower inflammation in the body.

4. Contain Antioxidants To Help Eye Health

Avocados help to increase absorption of antioxidants from other foods as well as are high in antioxidants themselves. These nutrients have been linked to reducing instances of cataract and macular degeneration.


5. Help Relieve Symptoms Of Arthritis

Arthritis is a common problem and multiple studies have shown avocados’ relieving effects on arthritic pain.
