Why is avocado healthy?

  1. Eating fruits and vegetables, including avocado, reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. In addition, there is a link between eating vegetables and a lower risk of colon cancer. This effect applies to all vegetables and not specifically to avocado.

Is avocado fruit or vegetable?

  1. Avocado is a fruit vegetable. It is classified as a vegetable because it is usually eaten as a vegetable. It therefore counts towards the guideline of 250 grams of vegetables per day. Avocado is in the Wheel of Five.

Fat in avocado

  1. Unlike other vegetables, avocado contains a lot of fat. The fat in the avocado is mainly oleic acid. Oleic acid is an unsaturated fat. Unsaturated fat lowers blood LDL cholesterol. Too high LDL cholesterol is not good for the blood vessels and can eventually lead to cardiovascular disease. So with an avocado you get good fats, just like with oil, soft and liquid margarine, fatty fish and nuts. Because the avocado contains a lot of fat, it provides many calories. One avocado provides about 360 kcal and contains 35 grams of fat. Instead of eating a whole avocado at once, you can use half or a quarter avocado and save the rest. Tip: If you cut the avocado into small cubes or make guacamole, you can freeze it. Add some lemon juice to prevent discoloration. It can be kept for up to 8 months.

Vary with vegetables

  1. Every vegetable contains different nutrients. The advice is therefore to vary between different vegetables and not to eat the same type every day.

Can you say that one product is healthy?

  1. You cannot actually say whether one product is healthy. It always depends on how much or how often you eat or drink it. We can therefore say whether a product fits in a healthy diet. Read more .
