Tid Bit(e) Tuesday
Avocado!!! Can you believe I’ve never talked about these? I know me neither! I think a lot of people know avocados are good for them but they might not actually know the reasons. Well here are some😉
- FATS- Why are avocados so good for you?? Omega 3 and monounsaturated fats! Which is amazing for your body to help absorb all those fat soluble vitamins (think A, E, D and K) And they have a good amount of fiber too!
- POTASSIUM- Avocado actually has more potassium than a banana! (1)
- VITAMIN K- One avocado has over half of the DRI for Vitamin K!!! Which is very important in bone development
- PAIN RELIEF- I thought this one was pretty interesting. Avocado oil has been linked to a reduction in osteoarthritis pain because of its anti-inflammatory effect! (2)
