Trying to go mighty but not meaty? Then avocados are the perfect fruit (yes, they’re a fruit!) to mix in with any meal. From that breakfast that will power you through the day to the sweet treat before bed, avocados are incredibly versatile and healthy.
Most people know what a vegetarian is and probably know someone who abstains from eating animals, but what is a vegan? Not only do vegans skip meat, but they also refrain from using animal products such as eggs, dairy, and honey.
Turns out your parents were right when they made you finish all the veggies on your plate at dinner time. Eating vegetables and fruits, like healthy avocados, is associated with a reduced risk of many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease. It may be protective against certain types of cancers, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Sure, giving up ribs and pepperoni pizza sounds worse than sleeping on a bed of nails, but a trip through the vegan section at your local grocery will prove you can have your cake and eat it too. Most of the animal products we consume have a vegan version ready to go.
Not only are avocados vegan, but avocados can also be one of the staples of a vegan diet. The body needs some dietary fat, and one-third of a medium sized avocado, which is a 50g serving, contains 6g of “good” fat. When thinking about how to start a vegan diet, avocados are one of the best places to start because of the nutrients they can add to many meals.
Avocado Toast: Tasty and trendy, simply smear that beautifully ripe avocado on your favorite piece of bread. This avocado toast recipe includes beans mashed into your avocado mixture which contributes additional dietary fiber and nutrients.

When you’re eating a vegan diet, or simply when you want to eat healthy, avocados can add a burst of both nutrition and flavor. Have fun trying out these recipes!
