5 Benefits To Eating Avocado graphicIn our family we can’t get enough of avocados. All year round here in Southern California you can find Hass Avocados and we enjoy using them in many different dishes. Did you know that avocados are also good for you.

5 Benefits To Eating Avocado

  1. Avocados make it easy for my kids to eat their fruits and get healthy unsaturated fats into their diets, which is great for their growing bodies and minds.
  2. Avocados contain naturally good monounsaturated fat and they are 100% cholesterol free.
  3. Avocados are a nutrient booster and allow your body to better absorb the other nutrient rich foods you consume.
  4. Avocados contain 20 minerals and nutrients to naturally give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and strong.
  5. Avocados taste great and make for an easy summer party food to enjoy with friends and family.

Our family and friends love avocados as much as we do so we were so excited to share a little fun with our own avocado in home party. We also served one of our own favorite recipes along with some delicious recipes with Hass Avocados. Since we just moved and our summer has been so hectic we loved the idea of just getting everyone together for a summer pool party. Where we can enjoy our family by the pool and just have a little fun and delicious food. pool party with avocados

    It looks like I need to learn to like avocado’s. I like them sliced in salads but that’s about the only way I’ll eat them.



  3. Rosey on July 24, 2017 at 7:29 am

    That’s a fun way to use the cauliflower too. We slice avocados on sandwiches, and that’s my favorite way to eat them.

    I love avocados and they are so healthy and filling. I love avocados in guacamole, eating just by itself or having it on my whole wheat toast!

    Yes, avocados are so good for you and have tons of nutritional value! Too bad I’m not the biggest fan, but will eat it in a salad and yours looks so yummy! Might have to try that!

    I love avocados. I actually just tasted my first avocado a few years ago. I had no ideas there were so many benefits to eating them!



  17. Liz Mays on July 17, 2017 at 5:39 pm

    This is great news! I’m really starting to get into avocados and it would be nice to work them into some more meals! Having some with chips and veggies sounds like a good idea.



  18. Sarah on July 17, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    My boyfriend is a huge avocado fan. I always thought it was nothing but loads of calories. It’s nice to know there are some benefits to eating it as well.



  19. jmanandmillerbug on July 17, 2017 at 2:39 pm

    I honestly had no idea that avocados were fat free! I have not eaten them in quite a while, but I definitely think I need to add them to my list again. You have a lot of great benefits mentioned hear that I love.



  20. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle on July 17, 2017 at 2:32 pm
