Guacamole Avocado and Health Benefits


These tasty “alligator pears” as they are often referred to make a great fat burning
 treat as well as promotes overall good health.

3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

Benefits:

Sometimes called the alphabet fruit because just one avocado provides your body with vitamins A, C, E, K and B6 so you can be sure you’re getting plenty of body nourishments with each bite. Other vitamins found in relatively large quantities in an avocado include riboflavin, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid.
When you’re looking for avocado nutrition facts, pay close attention to potassium because one avocado has 975 mg.
Avocados provide many general health benefits, in addition to its fat burning benefits due to its vitamin E and glutathione, which protects you against tons of diseases including several forms of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and cholesterol.
Avocados also help reduce the signs of aging, regulate blood sugar and promote eye health.
