AVOCADOS, My Latest Cravings


It's been almost 2 weeks now since I've been eating Avocados (this was right after I had a month cravings for Mangoes). Unfortunately, I am finished with mangoes! However, I'm afraid to say that, my baby fat size has been doubled since I started eating them! Oh dear... I have been told that this is very fattening, as this contains very high in calories. But I just can't afford to deprive myself, as soon as I think about my baby's sake!

I tell you what, I really wanted to stop eating them, but my baby doesn't want to!! lol....

Here are some of the benefits of the avocado:
• They contains around 25% of the calories and total fat of dairy butter, by weight
.
• When compared ounce for ounce they provide more heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, fiber, vitamin E, folic acid, and potassium than other fruits.

• Avocados are the number-one fruit source of beta-sitosterol, a substance that lowers total cholesterol better than a low fat diet, and even improves
HDL cholesterol.
• It also provides vitamin C and vitamin B6, and about one-third of your daily requirement of folate, a nutrient that helps neutralize excess levels of heart attack-causing homocysteine.

Naku Madz, baka lumaki ng husto si baby! Very nutritious talaga ang avocado. Mahirap talaga umiwas pag nagke-crave ka e! Hinay-hinay lang!
