Avocados are my favorite food. I can’t live without them, although it didn’t always use to be this way. Growing up in Poland during communism, there was hardly anything in the grocery store. We could only get oranges or bananas for Christmas. You can imagine that I had never tried avocados. I was introduced to this lovely green fruit for the first time after I had moved to the US. My first impression wasn’t the best because I was not too fond of the texture. It wasn’t until I became vegan that I fell in love with this goodness—this sent-from-heaven food!

Avocados are one of those universally loved foods. Stuffed in tacos, chopped on salad, sliced on bread, eaten as guacamole—they make everything taste richer and creamier. I eat avocados with whatever food I have on hand, or frequently I enjoy them plain.

Avocados are famous for their buttery texture and taste (a quality we vegans and raw foodies are grateful for!!!!), a quality that comes from the “good” monounsaturated fats they contain. One fat, oleic acid, helps to lower total cholesterol significantly. Oleic acid improves your cardiovascular system in addition to vitamins B6 and folic acid, which control homocysteine levels. Homocysteine levels are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. They are also rich in vitamin K and have 30% more potassium than bananas.

What I find the most interesting about avocados is that they are very high in fiber! Fiber helps digestion and regulates blood sugar. Avocados contain the antioxidant glutathione, which boosts your body’s immune system and contributes to keeping your nervous system healthy.

Avocado is known for its versatility because of its distinct and subtle flavor as well as its smooth, almost creamy texture. I use it to make shakes, raw soups, raw desserts, smoothies, raw ice creams, salads, sushi, and even to serve sliced raw on crackers.
