It’s 2021 and avocados are all the hype! This creamy fruit is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, making it a fantastic addition to your diet. Starting your day by consuming an avocado will provide you with hours of energy and satiety. Avocados are great for digestion because they are high in fiber and low in sugar. The beneficial fats are wonderful for skin health, vitamin and mineral absorption, and are an immune system booster! The high percentage of vitamin K found in this fruit supports bone and joint strength, and high levels of folate reduce cancer-risk and are beneficial to pregnant women. Get your day off to a healthy and energetic start with these avocado-inspired breakfast recipes!
