As delicious as avocados are, they are equally versatile and healthy. Avocados are a great fresh-fruit option to help boost fiber intake. Dietary fiber adds bulk to the diet and slows the speed of digestion, which makes you feel full and may help keep you satisfied longer. Just one-third of an avocado contains 3 grams of dietary fiber.
Some data supports that eating this drool-worthy fruit may support weight loss goals and suppress hunger. Thank goodness the avocado toast trend doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon.
Eat This! Tip: Use mashed avocado in sandwiches in place of creamy sauces or mayonnaise. This swap provides a similar consistency to traditional sandwich toppings with a nutrition boost that can help your waistline.
