Avocados are an amazing superfood.  They promote healthy skin and help to reduce the signs of aging.  They also promote eye heath and regulate blood sugar hence they aid in weight loss and protect against diabetes.  They are rich in folate and vitamin E thereby helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and they contain healthy fats which reduce inflammation and can be helpful in combatting arthritis. 

Store avocados at room temperature until ripened and ready to use, refrigerate ripe avocados. Store open avocado in an airtight container to prevent oxidation as the browning of the inside is due to oxygen.  Do not eat the peal and be sure to wash well before cutting though an avocado. Avocados provide the body with vitamins A, C, E, K B6 and potassium so be sure to incorporate this superfood into your diet. Check out this easy to make recipe for alkaline mexican soup.
