Avocados, Oh My!

By Megan

avocadosAvocados are a delicious, creamy fruit associated with many health benefits. Native to Mexico and Central America, botanically they are considered a berry. Most famous as the star ingredient in guacamole, this superfood should be an everyday staple for optimal health!

In Chinese medicine, avocados are cooling, which makes them perfect for spring and summer. The flavor is sweet, so it nourishes the body’s energy systems. They also lubricate the intestines and nourish the yin, meaning they are beneficial for dry skin, hair and eyes and great for anti-aging. They are also beneficial for the lungs, liver and stomach, helping with dry cough, irregular menstruation, stress and ulcers. Additionally, avocados are rich in inflammation-lowering monounsaturated fats, which are linked to heart health, and they contain triple the amount of potassium compared to bananas! Now that’s a superfood.

Use those free avocados to make this delicious, raw and vegan dessert – from Urban Remedy Home Retreat by Neka Pasquale L.Ac M.S. – today!
