What's So Great About This Fatty Fruit?


You’ve seen me posting a lot lately about avocados. I’ve been a little obsessed for a while and I don’t seem to be getting tired of these tasty little fruits. {Yes, it’s a fruit with a seed.} There are so many ways to enjoy them and I’ve shown you a dip, a guacamole recipe, a breakfast boat and today I am recommending that you add them to your summer grilling! They are amazing on your grilled burgers or chicken. Slice the avocado up and add it as a burger topping along with onions, tomato, cheese, sautéed green pepper slices…or whatever you can imagine! Load that all on a toasted bun, or for my keto friends, just do an open faced burger.

In just a 3.5 ounce serving of avocado you get:

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the daily value (DV)
  • Folate: 20% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the DV
  • Potassium: 14% of the DV
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the DV
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the DV
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the DV
  • It also contains small amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous and vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).

It goes without saying that next week I will most likely be posting another avocado idea so I will share with you then how the fruit benefits your skin! In the meantime, happy grilling and please share your favorite ideas with us on how you add avocado to your grilled meals.
