The Many Ways To Eat Avocados

AVOCADO

When it’s time to eat, I always turn to my favorite foods. Avocados are one of my favorite fruits, with so many different ways to enjoy it.

Avocados are packed with nutritional value and superb taste. A single avocado contains –

  • Vitamin K: 26%
  • Folate: 20%
  • Vitamin C: 17%
  • Potassium: 14%
  • Vitamin B5: 14%
  • Vitamin B6: 13%
  • Vitamin E: 10%

Avocados are high in Potassium. Several studies show that having a high potassium intake is linked to reduced blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure.

Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium and are low in saturated fat.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of avocado packs 7 grams of fiber, which is 27% of the RDA.

About 25% of the fiber in avocado is soluble, while 75% is insoluble.
