WCT Hummus Avocado Toast Recipe

Benefits of Avocados:

Avocados are a unique type of fruit because they are not high in carbohydrates or sugar like most other fruits. Instead, they are packed with healthy fat, fiber, potassium, and many other micronutrients. 

Of the healthy fats, avocados contain a plethora of oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fat. Oleic acid has been shown to potentially reduce blood pressure, inflammation, burn fat, and even protect cell membranes from damage by free radicals. Also, oleic acid is one of the major fats present in myelin, which is necessary for our nervous system to function. 

Interestingly, avocados contain more potassium than bananas- a medium-sized banana contains around 500mg whereas an avocado contains almost 1000mg!   

Lastly, avocados contain high levels of fiber, which helps aid in digestion and keeping the bowel healthy. Fiber has also been shown to maintain healthy levels of blood sugar and decrease cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
