Holy Guacamole!…No more boring Taco Salad
Want to liven up Taco Tuesday? I highly recommend this simple recipe that is packed with not only flavor but also healthy fats that benefit gut health. Avocados are packed with vitamin E & C, magnesium, folate and zinc, plus more potassium than bananas.
Avocados are packed with fiber to fuel good gut bacteria growth
Avocados are packed with fiber which helps provide essential fuel to friendly bacteria that play a role in weight loss & stalls, inflammation, and several chronic health conditions like diabetes, insulin resistance, & auto-immune diseases to name a few(read here to learn more about gut health.) The fat from avocados also nourish the gut lining that can help with constipation.
Healthy fats equal healthy mood and happy life
Healthy Fats facilitate proper thought-processing, hormone production, and stress-reduction mechanisms in the brain improving your mood and ability to handle what life throws your way(learn more about your gut health and mood connection here).
