I’ve been requested to find the benefits of Avocados. Personally, I can’t stand the taste of an avocado…however, after researching the benefits of an avocado maybe I’ll start to acquire a taste for them.

*Has been found to prevent prostate cancer

*Said to once be considered as an aphrodisiac

*Throw and avocado in your regular salad with tomatoes and spinach…because it helps reap the benefits of those vegetables/fruits – brings out their healthy qualities and benefits. Did you know that an avocado is a fruit!

*Great for your skin – rub an avocado on your dry skin – it softens it right up and gives you a great complexion! Eating avocados also benefits your skins appearance not to mention that they are really great for your stretch mark problem

*Avocados are low in carbs but very fattening – but it is considered the better of the fats – mono saturated however, so as with everything good or bad – always eat in moderation and enjoy because they are a great addition to a well balanced diet and are great for your overall health!! And be sure to always consult your doctor for pre-existing and current conditions before trying natural remedies.

If you don’t like avocados try using avocado oil in some of your dishes instead of regular vegetable oils especially in your fried food dishes!!

Remember…everything in moderation – too much of anything is not good for your health.

So, what is kale? Well it is part of the cabbage family but a more important question is how healthy is it and what can kale do for your overall health…
