Avocados were once thought to be too high in fat to enjoy regularly. However, the fat in avocados is extremely heart healthy and packed with powerful antioxidants that are anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogens. And interestingly, one study found that people who consume avocados weighed less than those who did not eat them.
Florida avocados are not the best choice for the classic application of guacamole due to their higher water content. But there are so many other great ways to enjoy them. Slice them up and use them on sandwiches instead of mayo. Enjoy them on whole grain crackers as an afternoon power snack. Or try them on toast with an over easy BH egg for breakfast, which is one of my favorites.
Here are a few other recipes to help you figure out some ways to enjoy the avocados you'll be receiving over the next few weeks.
Have a healthy week!
