We have a test for you to conduct at home—it’s simple and you’re likely to see some results. Add one half of an avocado to your breakfast—yes, it’s that simple. That’s all you need to do. Now, take mental
note of the time you normally eat lunch (or have that post-breakfast snack). We’re betting that your normal snack or lunchtime will be delayed by at least an hour because you’ll still be satiated from the avocado. Feeling fuller for longer is one of the many positive outcomes found in recent research, promoting the consumption of lots of healthy avocados. Why Are Avocados So Healthy?The keto-friendly nutrient powerhouses are rich in vitamins C, E, K, and B6—they also boast riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, lutein, beta carotene, and healthy monosaturated fats. Just one avocado gives 70 percent of recommended daily fiber, 27 percent potassium, 33 percent vitamin C, and 25 percent B6. Eating a whole avocado in one sitting may not sound appetizing for some but pairing half an avocado with eggs in the morning, and then adding another half to an afternoon
salad is quite doable. Or for a simple keto snack, fill your avocado with bay shrimp and salsa.
