Why do we love these magical green fruits so much? First off, they’re clearly delicious. But they’re healthy, too! Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fat (which can improve cholesterol levels, decrease risk of heart disease, and benefit brain activity), vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and vitamin B6 (promotes healthy skin and serves as a back-up fuel). Plus, they’re just darn delicious. And while avocados are a great addition to just about any healthy recipe, just remember not to overdo it — this fruit can be fairly high in calories for those watching their intake.
Here are 39 of our favorite delicious, at least semi-healthy avocado recipes. Try one of them today!
Avocado and Egg Breakfast Pizza
Pizza for breakfast? Yes, please! A whole-wheat Naan bread or other flatbread makes a great hearty base for a breakfast pizza. Top with avocado mash and an egg cooked any style. Throw on some extra veggies (we like arugula and tomato) for even more flavor and nutrients.
