18 Ways to Eat Avocados

 

Did you know that avocados are actually a fruit? Yup, this green fruit has a large seed on the inside and grows on trees!

Known for their healthy fats, avocados are higher in protein and have a low glycemic index due to their low sugar count. They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and a single medium avocado contains almost half the recommended daily intake of fiber!

Here is a roundup of some of our favorite avocado recipes from the FitFluential Ambassadors! Enjoy.
