How to use avocados on your diet

The easiest way is to cut the avocado in half and sprinkle it with herbal seasoning or maple syrup. Chop the avocado fruit and add it to a salad, or use it as a topping or side garnish for soup.

Mash avocado fruits and spread them on bread or a bagel (in place of butter or cream cheese). Cut avocado in half and fill the little hollow (left after you remove the pit) with your favorite healthy topping such as herbed rice or couscous.

Make an avocado dressing or the crowd-pleasing guacamole dip to add flavor to raw or steamed vegetables. You can easily find many avocado recipes online if you so wish. Blended with fruit, avocados make a rich and delicious snack, side dish or dessert, and produces highly-nutritious baby food which delivers “good fat” for baby’s brain and physical development.

Before you indulge in avocados to your heart’s content, remember that they have lots of calories because of their fat content. A medium-sized avocado contains 30 grams of fat. That’s why diet experts recently urged Americans to go easy on avocados in favor of less fatty fruits and vegetables. Nutrients are finding that most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated …the “good” kind that lowers cholesterol levels.
