Avocados have become known as the clichéd food of choice for millennials, but even if you’re someone who tends to hate on all millennial-fuelled trends, you can’t deny that avocados are awesome.
Here are some reasons why:
1.) They make the perfect snack food.
Whether eaten on their own (with a splash of salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar) or enjoyed with other foods, they make a great snack. Slice them up on a piece of rye toast, or add a dollop of cream cheese into the convenient hole left by the pit and viola: yummy snack!
2.) They are so good for you.
Filled with healthy fats, nutrients, and fibre, these heaven-sent gifts from the earth are a great addition to your growing list of healthy foods.
3.) They are a great “alternative”.
Avocados can be used to replace a large number of less healthy foods. For example, mix a can of tuna with an avocado instead of with mayonnaise. Add lemon juice, tobasco, or vinegar for flavour. You can also use avocados in baking as a replacement for eggs or butter.
4.) Guacamole is the best
A spicy/garlicky guacamole makes a lovely dip for fresh veggies. I also like to mix it straight into a salad so extra creamy yumminess. Or use it on rice crackers.
These tasty, heart-healthy and weightloss-friendly savoury fruits are definitely something to stock up on now while you don’t have to take out a loan to buy them. Once ripe, keep them in the fridge so that they last a little longer.
