Recipes with Avocado to lose weight with healthy fats
Avocado is a very versatile fruit with very beneficial qualities. Although it is a fruit rich in fat, we already know that we must know how to look further and conceive a food in its entirety, assessing the quality of its nutrients. Avocado contains monounsaturated fats and oleic acid, and fibre that generates satiety. All this is optimal for losing weight and providing your body with the fats it needs to function, even replacing those of animal origin. Avocado offers many possibilities to create delicious recipes that will please fitness or healthy lifestyle enthusiasts.
