A is for Avocado!
Welcome to the second installment of A-Z of Natural Wellness. Today I’m excited to share the amazing health and beauty benefits of Avocados!
Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats. These healthy fatty acids increase energy and burn unwanted fat. Avocado oil is a rich source of vitamins A, D, and E and contains levels of potassium. You can reap the many benefits of this amazing superfruit by drizzling the oil over salads, substitute mayonnaise with smashed avo. The oil has a high burning factor and can be used for frying or grilling.
