More and more today the world is looking to avocados as the next wholesome nutritious food replacement. Originating in Mexico and Central America it can now be found in many other countries like Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, India, china, Japan, Peru and the list goes on.
Ranging from being able to cure certain cancer diseases to the ideal food energy source for body builders, this remarkable fruit is fast gaining the popularity it so aptly deserves.
A little known fact about the avocado is that, when the avocado fruit is mixed into salads, it aids in the absorption of all the other nutrients the salad may have in a more efficient way.
When a comparison is made with other fruits the avocado wins all the time, as the fruit that is better able to allow the nutrients to be absorbed and also for its high content of many different nutrients.
The avocado is also considered a “meaty” fruit as the creamy like texture is rich and quite adequately makes for a good meal or an accompanying ingredient that enhances and enriches any dish.
For those wanting to avoid certain foods for health or religious reasons the avocado is known to be a good substitute as it contains adequate amounts of meat proteins, fat oils, vitamins and minerals.
