Avocado Recipes – Nutritious and Delicious

avocados and limes

Avocados don’t just taste great, they’re also packed with loads of nutrients. These green fruits provide folate, vitamins B, C, K and E, fiber, niacin, potassium and more. If you want a food that is going to give your body the nutrients and vitamins it needs every day, grab yourself an avocado! The monounsaturated fats help your body absorb the nutrients from other foods as well.

Avocados are best eaten raw. In recipes where it is used as a primary ingredient, a little lemon juice prevents it from browning. Try some of these recipes to see how far the avocado can go!

    I love avocados! Looking forward to trying some of these ideas and recipes.

    BTW, when I post this link on FaceBook, the pic is of a couple of bowls of brussels sprouts… would be nice if it was of the gorgeous avos above!
