Did You Know?…

This recipe is chock full of healthy goodness.

Some people avoid eating avocados often because avocados have fat. But the fat in avocados is extremely healthy. The fat in avocados contain phytosterols, which helps keep inflammation under control. That makes avocados a great food for those with arthritis.

Also, over half of the total fat in avocado is in the form of oleic acid, which is the fat also found in olive oil. Oleic acid helps increase our absorption of nutrients like carotenoids. Oleic acid has also been shown to help lower our risk of heart disease.

So reach for those beautiful little green gems and eat more healthy avocados.

Use low fat mayonnaise if you want to cut the fat content. I personally don’t like the idea of low fat versions of foods, but many people do.
