Starting the morning with a little avocado. It’s one of my favorite foods. I actually throw a little salt and pepper on it and eat it plain sometimes! Today I’ll put it on top of my eggs.

Health benefits of avocado:

•Has more potassium than bananas

•Loaded with heart healthy fats

•Loaded with fiber

•Has antioxidants that protect eyes

•Protects liver

•Maintains skins heath

•Aids in digestion 

•Prevents bad breath 

•Reduces inflammation 

Avocados are SO healthy for babies too! 1/2 an avocado can meet 100% of their folate need, and 86% of their vitamin B6 need. Being a complete source of protein, it has the 10 essential amino acids a baby needs from food and also has minerals like potassium and magnesium. (Note: it’s recommended that babies are fed avocado purée only after 6 months old)

Eat your avocados! 🥑
