Avocados have many health benefits

Avocados, probably one of the most popular super foods of the moment. I actually eat avocado at any time of the day. For breakfast in smoothie, for lunch on toast with a scrambled eggs, as a beef-avocado burgers or as a snack/dessert in a new type of “cheese” cake.

But before we share some delicious recipes, first answer the big question: is it vegetables or fruit? The answer is fruit! The definition of fruit is that it is part of a plant in which the seeds are located and an avocado contains seeds. But it is a crazy kind of fruit, because in contrast to most fruit it contains a lot of fat in the form of Omega 3. This, and the many fiber, vitamins and potassium, makes this fruit a super super food. But eat in moderation (half a day), because an avocado also contains a lot of calories.
