Avocados are fats. But this is just the case of healthy polyunsaturated fat, from which the body synthesizes Omega-3. It is this type of fat that lowers the level of bad cholesterol and reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. About the benefits of avocado and 5 original sauces.

Avocados contain an abundance of B vitamins, vitamins A and E, potassium and sterols, which also effectively help to metabolize “harmful” cholesterol and help the body to come into balance in moments of stress.

This fruit improves the intestinal microflora. Lutein and zeaxanthin, which are saturated with the fruit, protect the eyes from age-related degenerative changes.

Avocado contains a large amount of antioxidants. They fight autoimmune diseases, asthma, chronic infections, arthritis, and reduce the risk of developing cancer.

Another healthy component of avocado, glutathione, is important for liver health and detoxification processes.

What snacks can be made from avocado?

The best avocado snack is, in fact, just a fruit cut into slices. For this, large and bright-tasting fruits are better suited, ideally – “choquette”. Sprinkle the sliced fruit with soy sauce or ponzu: fatty avocado likes acid. You can cut ginger into the sauce or add wasabi-for spice and sharpness. Since avocado likes everything salty and sour, all my sauces for it are different options on this topic. The acid also helps the avocado to retain its color and not darken — this is important if you put avocado in a salad. Sweet and spicy chili sauce is perfectly combined with avocado.

All these sauces are also suitable for salads with avocado. Combine avocado with any fresh vegetables (for example, cucumbers or zucchini) and balance the taste with sour ingredients: tomatoes, lemon juice.

This cream can even be spread on fresh avocado — you will get two different textures with a similar taste.

What is combined with avocado, with fish or meat?

Avocado goes well with fish and seafood, because they do not clog the taste of each other. You can eat avocado with scallops or shrimp and taste both. In addition, fish and seafood are combined with sauces that I like to serve with avocado — based on soy and ponzu. Avocado can be served as a side dish to fish, accompanied, for example, with wasabi or olive oil with herbs. I serve sliced fruit with boiled crab meat, seasoned with olive oil and black pepper: a wonderful combination.

And imagine an avocado and a steak — it is immediately clear that the meat will attract attention. But you can also combine avocado with meat, for example, with stewed beef, it has a more delicate taste than fried.
