The avocado, which is actually a fruit, not a vegetable, boasts a wide array of health benefits. Rich in fiber, and full of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, B vitamins and folic acid, this fruit is one we should strive to incorporate into our diet on a regular basis.
We know the avocado is delicious as guacamole, or sliced on top of a sandwich or salad, but the 5 recipes below give some fresh and unexpected ways to eat more avocados.
1. Avocado and Egg Breakfast Pizza
This dish from The Kitchn gives you the health benefits of avocado, as well as cilantro, which detoxifies heavy metals, and eggs, which are high in protein, good fats and vitamin E. Plus, it’s an easy breakfast that is sure to please both kids and adults alike.
2. Avocado Buckwheat Pancakes
It may sound strange, but using avocados in baked goods gives them a creamy texture without making them taste like guacamole.
