The truth? We mostly love avocados for the creamy, rich, indulgent texture and flavor. But… turns out that there are quite a lot of great excuses to eat them! (WHEW!)

#1 // Did you know that avocados contain more potassium than bananas?

  • 100 grams (or a half of an average Hass avocado) = 487 mg of potassium

#2 // Eating avocado may help with weight loss.

  • Avocados can keep you full longer, plus they’re low in carbohydrates and rich in fiber.

#3 // Avocados are packed with vitamins and nutrients.

  • They’re a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. Avocodos also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Avocados are loaded with powerful antioxidants that can protect your eyes. It contains lutein and zeaxanthin which is truly helpful for a healthy eyesight.

#5 You can easily incorporate avocado on your diet, why? Because it is so DELICIOUS!
