If you’re like me, you absolutely love avocados for a variety of reasons. Not only are they delicious, but they are also tremendously high in nutritional value as well. Whenever you can find that distinguished combination of health, value and taste, you know you’ve found a winner. They are a much healthier option to use for creating dips such as guacamole. But we all face the issue of having them go brown- what can be done about it?
Studies shown that this fruit reduces hypertension and slows down the heart. It relaxes its vessels and keeps the heart safe. Avocado has lots of healthy fat, easily is stored inside and broken down too, and this fat is much better than processed food fats. Another study said the avocado is great for diabetes curing. It improves the glucose uptake in the muscles and liver, and lowers the risk of metabolic issues that damage the vessels and nerves.
As you might already know, avocados are rich in healthy fats, fiber, potassium, vitamin E, folic acid and B vitamins. Also, avocados are low in carbs and they don’t contain any cholesterol or sodium. These are just some of the health benefits; quite frankly, you could write an entire book on the subject. Studies show that replacing saturated fats with healthy fats (like those found in avocados) and oils is better for your heart than going low fat but adding refined flours and sugars in its place. Did you know that they are a better source of potassium than a banana?
Amazing avocado trick
Place the avocados face down and in a 1/2 inch pool of water inside an airtight container. Then, close the lid and leave it in the fridge. This strategy will keep your ripe avocado green for nearly three days. Seriously, it’s that simple and it works!
