We're HUGE fans of avocado around here -- huge. We use them in GLOW! and FRESH!, we like them in the standard everyday salad and guacamole, but we also like them in the not-so-standard raw, chocolate mousse and blended green soups. Avocado is just that good from both a culinary perspective as well as a nutritional perspective.
Avocados contain a plethora of healthy fats, one being oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat, that may help to lower cholesterol. Avocados are also a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure, and are rich in other essential nutrients like fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, C, K, folate, riboflavin, niacin, and magnesium. They are also touted as a beauty food, beneficial both in weight loss and in getting the "glow" back -- ever hear of people using them for homemade face masks? Plus, and this one is particularly important, avocado actually helps the absorption of many nutrients in GREENS when consumed together. Yet another reason why we love our satisfying, rich and creamy avocado-based blends, GLOW! AND FRESH!
