Could you eat an avocado every day?
Yes. The answer is yes. Beyond the simple fact that they taste absolutely delicious, the little green fruit is actually very good for you.
Not only are they loaded with rich fat but are also an excellent source of fiber. They are packed with nutrients such as folate, vitamins B6, C, E, K as well as selenium and zinc. Added bonus: they are low in carbohydrates and sodium! Unlike the unhealthy saturated fats, the fats in avocados are mono-unsaturated, similar to olive oil. These MUFAs (monounsaturated fatty acids) found in avocados are known to lower the risk of heart disease and other health risks.Rebecca Huff

How to get more avocados in your diet.
Can you eat too many avocados? Considering the health benefits it couldn’t hurt to eat an avocado a day. Some might suggest that if you’re trying to lose weight you might want to go with half an avocado per day. Although, if you’re following a ketogenic diet, an avocado a day might be a great idea, as long as you’re also getting healthy fats from other foods.Easy ways to eat more avocado
About the Author: Lara Ferroni
I didn't really mean to become a photographer. But with the first photo that I took of a batch of homemade raspberry scones, I knew I was a goner. My family quickly learned to ask first before digging in with their forks as I became completely snap-happy around any kind of food. Family vacations were hijacked to make special trips to particularly photogenic markets or restaurants.
Luckily for me, and my family, this passion quickly turned into something a bit more useful… beautiful images of food, travel and life for editorial publications and advertising.
And then, I didn't really mean to become a cookbook author. But photos led to recipes led to this crazy notion that the world needed a cookbook dedicated to doughnuts!Lara Ferroni
