What are good fats?

America has come to realize that not all fats are bad fats and that not all fats can make us fat. One great example are avocados which contains roughly 80% fat, but 2 thirds of that fat comes from mono saturated fatty acids, which can also be called good fats. Monounsaturated fatty acids not only lowers the odds of obesity, but it has been proven to reduce the percentage of contracting heart diseases. Without a doubt, avocados will make you leaner, healthier and also smarter.

Its no wonder that more and more restaurants and eateries are coming up with menus which contains avocados. One great example is Carl’s Jr with it’s Guacamole Turkey Burger which contains avocados and other meat. 

What i normally do to include my meal with avocados

One great way to combine avocados with your meals is to make sandwiches. Sandwiches are not only extremely portable, it is also extremely easy to make. My sandwich recipe normally contains a mixture of vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers as well as lettuce. I then add a generous serving of crushed avocado along with some lean meat such as a piece of grilled skinless chicken breast. 

Alternatively, you can create an avocado milkshake which you can drink during your meals. Below are the steps on how to create a delicious avocado milkshake

Blend the following till the mixture is smooth:

  • Evaporated Milk
  • Avocados
  • Some water
  • Low-Fat Milk
