Baked Avocado Eggs 4 Ways
These Baked Avocado Eggs Are Literally The Most Perfect Breakfast Ever
There are many benefits of avocados and avocado oil and they have gained massive popularity in recent years…and for good reason!
Avocados are a decadent and versatile fruit that is great in many recipes. They have a delicious, creamy richness that really satisfies, whether in a dip, on a salad, or blended in a dessert. You can’t help but feel like you’re indulging!
Maybe what adds to the satisfaction is knowing you’re getting a great dose of nutrition to boot!
Avocados are somewhat unique in the fruit world. It could even be said that avocados are one of the fattiest foods out there…but in a good sense!
They make every calorie and fat gram worthwhile since they are extremely nutrient dense. An avocado contains over 20 vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C, vitamin B-6, magnesium, and potassium. In fact, a cup of pureed avocado contains almost four times more potassium than a whole banana.
A single serving of avocado contains 50 calories and 4.5 grams of fat (and that’s just in 1/5th of an avocado). I’d say our family tends to eat more like ½ an avocado per individual serving, which makes it 130 calories and 15 grams of fat.
Although this may seem like a lot of fat and calories, studies show that avocado consumption can actually help control cholesterol and weight.
