My family and I are huge fans of the Avocados from Mexico and we eat them a lot. I have several favorite recipes that call for avocados including homemade guacamole, salads, and even in desserts. Although I serve dishes with avocados often because they are delicious, I also serve the fruit because of health properties they have. Much research and endless studies have shown that people who include avocado in their diet on a regular basis can help their bodies avoid certain health issues. We have breast cancer in our family, and I read that oleic acid, which is found in avocados, has shown to lower a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer. Other health risks such as prostate and oral cancers, heart disease, high cholesterol and stroke have proven to be lowered with a regular diet of avocado. I feel good knowing I am giving my family the nutrition and health benefits they deserve by serving one of our favorite foods.
The Avocados from Mexico are celebrating during the month of February with a ton of fun on their Facebook page. When you visit their Share the Avocado Love Facebook app, you will find fun apps you can use for yourself and share with your friends and family.
