Creamy, nutty and wonderfully green – avocados are delicious for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. You can smash them, flash them, slice them, freeze them, and even bake them with them. They are also good for us – hurray!
Avocados are a source of vitamin E, which protects our cells (the tiny building blocks of our body) from damage so we can stay healthy and strong. They’re also high in unsaturated fats, which help keep our blood cholesterol levels healthy.
These fats also help us absorb fat-soluble vitamins like vitamin D. In our strange and wonderful body, many nutrients need fat to be properly absorbed. Try using avocado oil (or another oil that is low in saturated fat) in your salad dressings to help absorb nutrients from your vegetables and salad.
