Avocado: The World’s Healthiest Food

Posted on June 18, 2013. Filed under: Diet, Eat these!, Nutrition | Tags: , , , , , , |

If you were stranded on a desert island and could have just one food with you, what would you choose. I would choose an avocado. The avocado page on the Whole Foods website offers an amazingly comprehensive explanation of the seemingly endless nutritional value of the avocado, but here is why I try to eat one every day. Avocados are:

  • full of antioxidants
  • enhance the absorption of other antioxidants
  • anti-inflammatory
  • full of good fats
  • blood sugar regulators

Add an egg to it, like I did for breakfast this morning and you get:

  • a complete range of amino acids
  • all the B vitamins
  • rich source of selenium and iodine, minerals difficult to obtain from other foods
  • omega-3 fats

Recipe

  1. cut 1 avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out a little extra if needed
  2. drop one egg in each avocado half
  3. sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste
  4. bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes (don’t overcook!)
