Starting the Day with a Smoothie

Having a healthy smoothie for breakfast is such a great way to start the day and can be much quicker than preparing a meal. It can also help you get large amounts of nutrients from one quick drink!

If you find that you don’t always have time for a nutrition breakfast in the morning, then I definitely suggest you give smoothies a go instead.

Avocado Health Benefits

Although I often use avocado in my recipes and frequently talk about the benefits, I would like to touch on this again, especially in relation to eating them every day!

Research has shown that people who eat avocados every day tend to have a much higher nutrient intake than those who don’t. The research shows that these people are also likely to have a lower BMI.

Check out the following five reasons why you should eat a whole avocado every day!

  • Avocados  are a great source of heart healthy fats. This type of fat can reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems while also lowering cholesterol levels.
  • Eating an avocado every day can help to manage your weight and even support weight loss. They will leave you feeling satisfied for longer, which means you’re less likely to snack between meals.
  • Avocados are useful for managing blood sugar levels, which means they’ll help to lower your risk of developing diabetes.
  • Chronic inflammation in the body can cause a wide range of health problems. Eating avocados helps to fight inflammation thanks to the oleic acid contained within. This compound is also found in olive oil.
  • Avocados contain a healthy dose of vitamin K which is essential for building strong bones.

Getting avocado into your diet every day doesn’t have to be difficult and including this smoothie will help you on your way!
