This incredibly creamy, delicious fruit (yes, fruit) is possibly one of the most perfect foods you can eat. Rich in vitamins and minerals and full of healthy fats, avocados facilitate the absorption of nutrients in the other foods we eat. They keep your heart and brain functioning properly, promote blood circulation and regulate blood pressure, aid in digestion and prevent cancer, while also boosting anti-inflammatory and anti-aging qualities. Phew! Eating one before a yoga practice will help you feel satiated and keep your body functioning properly during all those downward dogs. The simplest way to enjoy is with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, but you can try guacamole, sauces for pasta or fish, blend it into a smoothie, toss it into a salad or add it to a sandwich instead of meat. Get creative! Avocados are delicious, nutritious and fun to experiment with!
