Ever since a friend of mine @xposedbeauty -this is her IG name, she also has a blog: xposedbeauty.blogspot.com ( you will love her info!) introduced me to this little piece of heaven it is hard to do without! Adding 1/2 an avocado to your protein shake will not only give you the much needed healthy fat that we all need but it totally changes the consistency of the shake too. So thick and yummy! In my shake I go with Cellucor whey protein powder any flavor, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, mixed berries, small banana, and just about 2 handfuls of spinach. Depending on what thickness I am in the mood for I will add water as I go.
But let's get to the health benefits of AVOCADOS:
*Adds hair shine
*Clear white eyes
*Keeps you feeling full
*Essential B vitamins
* Cell repair
* Energizes the metabolism
* High in Vitamins C, K, E, and Potassium
* Aids in heart health
* Aids in weight loss
* Also works as an age spot reducer and collagen boost
* most importantly it's an amazing source of healthy fat- We NEED healthy fats everyday. We should not fear healthy fats. Yes you should fear the fat in french fries but never the fats of a healthy food source! Our bodies need fat to properly function and survive a healthy eating lifestyle. It's just separating the good from the bad and finding the right balance!
