I love avocado, but my better half does not. I’d like to try and incorporate this healthy fruit into our daily diet, but I’ll have to get creative. Why do I want to incorporate it? There are many proven health benefits. Each day this week, I’ll list 2 different health benefits AND, post a video, showcasing a different way to use this amazing plant.

Health benefits of avocados (1)

  • THE FAT HELPS ABSORB OTHER NUTRIENTS
    • The vitamins A, D, E, and K, are called “Fat soluble”. This means you need to consume fat at the same time, in order to properly absorb them. The fat in avocados will do just that.
  • CONTAIN EYE PROTECTING ANTI-OXIDANTS
    • Avocados contain the following nutrients needed for eye health: lutein and zeaxanthin

About Tamara Hoerner (1141 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
