Calling all avocado lovers! Whether you’re topping off your toast or making some guacamole, avocados can add delicious flavor to any meal.
Did you know they are incredibly nutritious too? We are here to discuss the benefits of this favorite fruit and how we incorporate them to our plates at Colony Diner.
Loaded with Fiber
Avocados are extremely rich in fiber. Having this nutrient in our bodies can help control blood sugar levels, as well as blood pressure.
A great way to get fiber in your diet is through fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains. Try starting your day off with our new Avocado Toast with Multi-Grain Bread!
Add Some Protein
Protein is one of the most important macronutrients to add to your diet. When looking at fruits high in protein, avocados are at the top of the list.
Consuming protein is essential for your muscles and bone health. Including avocados in your meal is an easy way to up your intake. Our High Protein Omelette with Egg Whites, Diced Grilled Chicken, Diced Tomatoes and Avocado is the perfect way to get your fill.
Avocado is easy to incorporate into most diets. Low-carb eating can help prevent conditions like high blood pressure and different cardiovascular diseases. According to Healthline, avocados contain about 9 grams of carbs but 7 of those are actually fiber!
With only 2 net carbs, avocados are considered a low-carb food; salads are great low-carb meals. Try our Cobb Salad with Marinated Chicken Breast, Crispy Bacon, Fresh Mushrooms, Avocado, Hard Boiled Egg and Cheddar Cheese to satisfy your hunger.
