Avocados

Avocados

Mmmmmhhh. I loooove Avocados. I would not mix them with Spirulina like the previous recipe I posted. I prefer to enjoy both of them in different combinations but not with each other.
New research shows that Avocados stand out nutritionally too.

Researchers at Shizuoka University in Japan fed 22 different fruits to a group of rats. The rats had liver damage caused by galactosamine, a powerful liver toxin. The researchers then measured the changes in specific liver enzymes. Of the 22 fruits, the avocado had the most potent liver-protecting activity. In fact, avocados boast five compounds that appear to be active in reducing liver damage. Hirokazu Kawagishi, the study leader, says: “Besides offering taste and nutrition, avocados seem to improve liver health. People should eat more of them.” Avocado fat is the heart-healthy monounsaturated variety. It has a list of nutrients including antioxidant vitamins E and C, glutathione, lutein, and zeaxanthin.

Enjoy those avocados. They are ripe when they yield to touch.

    Hello,

    My name is Prabhu, I work with Dhrumil at welikeitraw.com

    We’re collecting the contact emails of people in the raw food community and I was hoping you could send me yours. Would you mind shoot me an email at prabhu@dboost.com

    The reason I’m asking for it is that Dhrumil and the team at We Like It Raw are trying to unite all the bloggers with a common sub-site.

    Thanks!
    Prabhu
