Avocado- fruit or vegetable? Should I eat it?

Posted on 8 February, 2012 at 12:34 Comments comments (0)








The avocado is technically considered a fruit, even though it is not sweet like a fruit.  It can be a great addition to a healthy diet.  It can be part of the Mediterranean diet which is low in saturated fats and high in monounsaturated fats, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

Why eat one? 
First of all, they offer many  nutritious benefits such as fiber, potassium, vitamins, B, E and K.  They also help you to absorb some of the fat soluble vitamins you eat, since they are a monounsaturated fat.  

What to do with them?  Take out the pit, slice them or mash them- add some garlic, cilantro and basil for a delicious spread, add a splash of lemon juice at the end.  

Throw sliced or diced avocados into salad.  Smash one and put it on a baked potato for extra fiber.  

I got a couple of these recipe ideas from www.avocado.org.  

Enjoy!
