Avocados are a perfect food that replaces imperfect protein foods such as meat, eggs, cheese and poultry. Avocados contain high quality essential fatty acids and proteins that are easily digested. They also contain 14 minerals which regenerate and stimulate growth. They are an excellent source of iron and copper which build red blood cells. Avocados contain sodium and potassium which support a healthy alkaline blood balance. Because of their low sugar content and absence of starch, avocados are excellent for diabetics or sugar-sensitive disorders. This fruit contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, iron, phosphorous and magnesium. Avocado is high in vitamin E which slows down aging.

Bananas and avocados fulfill the desire for heavier food in a perfectly digestible form. So eat up, especially during intense athletic performance. They are a slow burning fuel compared with fruit and vegetable juices which digest quickly. This is why small slices of avocado, spaced through the day, are recommended for those with blood sugar imbalances. Avocados are effective in balancing blood sugar levels. They are also beneficial in fighting candida where the harmful bacteria flourish in high blood sugar.

The avocado, or alligator pear, is a common evergreen found in Mexico and Central and South America. There are over 400 varieties. The Mexican variety is grown in the San Joaquin Valley of California, the Guatemalan in Southern California and the West Indian in Florida. Pear-shaped or oval fruit are borne 2 to 3 years after planting. Avocados are the highest in producing fruit oil, consisting of almost 30% oil. Filled with enzymes, avocado is a source of fat that is easy to digest. Because of its ability to easily combine with starches, it makes a great dip for raw vegetables. Blended with fruit, it produces a highly-nutritious baby food. We consider this precious fruit so important that we have given it its own section amongst the fruit recipes.  Purchasing perfect avocados can take some practice; it is a delicate fruit. Avocados can go from being perfectly ripe to over-ripe in a matter of a day. This will result in the oil becoming rancid and mushy, discoloring to an unsightly brown. So we suggest that you buy them unripe and allow them to ripen on the counter. Unripe avocados will be dark green and hard. As they begin to ripen, they turn a dark greenish brown and become slightly soft to thumb pressure. The inner flesh of a ripened avocado will be a gorgeous lime green without any brown spots. The easiest way to remove the flesh is to cut the fruit in half, lengthwise, and twist open. The pit will remain in one side. Remove by imbedding knife into the pit and twisting.

There are many ways to eat the mild-mannered avocado. The easiest method is to cut it in half and sprinkle with herbal seasoning, Sucanat or maple syrup. Avocados have great personality. They get along with just about anything. Half an avocado has a convenient little impression left by the pit. Whatever you decide to put in that tiny bowl will determine the taste of the unique and diverse multifaceted character of this fruit.

Avocados can replace butter by using it as a spread on bread.  The reason we like the taste of butter is that scientists have discovered that fat is a flavor enhancer.  Avocados work in the same we but the fat in them is less saturated.  Avocado will wash off with water ,but not so with butter because the fat is stickier. 

Avocado dressings bring raw vegetables from the obscurity of boredom, propelling them to the heights of illustriousness. There is simply nothing better than a platter full of freshly cut carrot sticks, green and red peppers, cucumber slices, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and mushrooms. And in the center, the smooth, silky green, perfectly seasoned avocado dip. A great replacement for potato chips. When you've got the munches, nothing else will do.

We have gone out of our way to make you feel good about fruit, especially avocados.  If you are a mother trying to change the eating habits of your family, serving an apple for supper simply will not do. It is important to be as creative as you can. Give them variety, lots of color, tasty sauces and dips so that they don't feel deprived.

Eating is pleasurable. The variety of food that God has provided reveals how much He wants you to enjoy His bounty. Take time in the kitchen and use your creativity to make wonderful, healthy meals. Learning to use avocados to replace toxic dips and dressing is a great step forward.

TODAY'S FEATURE ARTICLE

 
Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
