The Be Well Coach: Avocados

by Leslie O’Neill

Happy Friday!

avocadoThis week’s smoothie features my favorite healthy fat, the avocado. Avocados are a perfect addition to your smoothie to add creaminess and great nutrition. Most of us love avocado when it is in the form of guacamole and served with chips so I encourage you to try a new way of looking at this very nutrient dense fruit.

 

Some of the health benefits you may receive from avocados are:
1. Heart protection
2. Lowered cholesterol
3. Stroke prevention
4. Cancer protection

Here is a simple but delicious recipe for you to try, it takes minutes to make and will fill your belly up with great nutrition.
