Avocados are one of the healthiest foods you can eat, which is why it's know as a super food. They are rich in nutrients and contain close to 20 vitamins and minerals. These vitamins include vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin D, vitamin E, iron, fiber, folate and potassium. Avocados are also high in healthy fat content, containing saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat.
Along with being packed full of vitamins and nutrients, avocados are heart healthy, can help improve your eyesight, can prevent cancer and osteoporosis, can improve digestion, can lower your risk of anxiety and depression, and it can also help you detox naturally.
You can incorporate avocados into your daily diet by adding them to smoothies or salads, eating them as a dip, using them as a topping, adding them on top of toast, using it as a substitute for mayonnaise and other dressings, or just eating them by themselves. You can eat avocados everyday, however one serving size is about one cup, so make sure you don't over-do it.
