Five Reasons to Adore Avocado

Avocado has SO many benefits. In honor of #nationalavocadoday (who even knew all of these national days existed?!), I’m sharing some of my favorite reasons to incorporate avocado into your life!

1. Avocados are a heart healthy food.

2. Avocado consumption can help to lower cholesterol.

3. Avocados are LOADED with antioxidants.

Is it a coincidence that two of my favorite things, avocado and coffee are both packed with antioxidants?! Absolutely. But I’m glad that they are and I’ll continue to indulge in them!

4. You can add avocado to almost anything.

Omelettes, salads, tacos, or as a side dish.. Avocados truly are such a versatile food. It’s easy to add them into dishes without the little ones noticing!

5. Avocado is GREAT for your skin!

You can use an avocado based face mask, or just mash one up and spread it on your face. Avocados are packed with nutrients and vitamins that help to create elastic skin, prevent wrinkles and fine lines, and moisturize the skin.

Avocados are a great superfood and something that I always like to have stocked in the fridge. Plus, I think they’re so cute! I love these handmade leather earrings from a store calledΒ Sweet Leather GoodsΒ in Baton Rouge! If you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping by their store! They are the SWEETEST people and they sell the most fun and unique pieces.
