6 Unique & Exciting Ways to Eat Avocado
5 New Ways to Use Avocado
Avocados aren't just delicious—they're brimming with health benefits. For starters, they’re high in potassium (half an avocado contains 487 milligrams, more than you’ll find in a medium banana), which can help lower blood pressure. Their healthy fats (the monounsaturated kind) can help fight high cholesterol and fend off belly fat.
Active women need to make sure they eat enough fat to perform their best. When competitive female runners ate a diet with less than 20 percent fat, they were more likely to suffer injuries than those who consumed at least 31 percent fat, according to researchers at the University of Buffalo. Researchers speculate that the problem is linked to extreme low-fat diets, which weaken muscles and joints. "A few slices of avocado a day are a great way to boost fat for women who are fat-shy," says Leslie Bonci, R.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
We can’t think of a reason why you wouldn’t want to chow down on more of these green wonders, especially when they’re more versatile than you may think. The five recipes below will teach you how to work avocados into breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert.
Forbreakfast, try a Mango Surprise Smoothie. Avocado goes undercover and lends this morning drink a silky smoothness. Mango juice is loaded with cancer-fighting beta carotene and can be found in most supermarkets.
