AVOCADO

Who don’t like the fruit with it’s creamy texture and fresh buttery taste? We all know that it is healthy as well! But what exactly do we know about avocados benefits?
Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.

In 100g (approx. 1 small fruit):

Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA
Folate: 20% of the RDA
Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA
Potassium: 14% of the RDA
Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA
Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA
Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA
Fiber: 7 grams; 27% of RDA

Having 22g of fats in 100g of product, avocado can increase “fat soluble” (meaning that they need to be combined with fat in order to be utilized) nutrients absorption. This includes vitamins A, D, E and K… along with antioxidants like carotenoids. It is worth to mention that avocados are also high in antioxidants.
And of course avocados are very very tasty! 😋
