Alrighty, so what's the deal with avocados? Everyone seems to be talking about avocado toast. Well here's the low-down: avocados are nutrient rich, they are high in minerals, vitamins and good fats. But beware, they do contain a high amount of fat! If you look up the nutrition information for an avocado you might see one serving listed as 1/5 of an avocado. YES! You read that right, it's often considered that one avocado has 5 servings. So when you see only 4,5 or 5 grams of fat per serving you think "okay, great! I'll have an avocado!" But please know that a whole avocado is going to pack in about 22-25 grams of fat, and that's for a regular sized Haas avocado.
But like all good food it's about how you balance your food choices over the whole day. I will usually have half an avocado so we're talking about 14 grams of fat. Not bad, I'll just be aware of not consuming too many other high fat foods for the rest of the day. It's all about balance! We should all enjoy the foods we love, especially ones like avocados when they're SO good for you!
- 2 slices of whole grain bread
- 1/2 avocado

1. Toast the bread
2. While you bread is toasting rough chop your avocado and then put it in a bowl, use a fork to mash the avocado a little bit
3. Spread the avocado on your toast and place the tomato slices alongside
Enjoy and Love Good Food! ❤️
