BANANA AVOCADO

STOP using banana and avocado together with fruit and chocolate in smoothies!

Many people include banana and/or avocado in their smoothies because of the pleasing mouth feel and creamy texture that they impart in the drink without having to use an alternative unhealthy fat source. These two foods also have significant nutritional value. However, what virtually nobody knows, outside of nutritional scientist geeks who study these things, is that both banana and avocado contain very high amounts of an enzyme known as “polyphenol oxidase”. As the name implies, this enzyme oxidizes (aka, degrades) the beneficial plant polyphenols responsible for many of the known health benefits of most fruits (berries in particular) and cocoa.

Use banana and avocado if you like them, as they do impart their own benefits. However, if you are adding them in a smoothie that also contains berries and other fruits, or cocoa (chocolate), you are negating much of the health benefits of those wonderful ingredients. You can consume all of these ingredients but separate your banana and avocado by at least 30-minutes from fruits/berries and cocoa.

THE AVOCADO

One of my Top 10 foods of all time, the avocado.
The avocado has many health benefits, they offer an abundance of fiber, potassium (more than a banana!), and vitamins B6 and C. They’re also rich in folate, which can boost your mood! But the nutrient avocados offer the most of is fat.

Avocado is a high-fat food.

In fact, over 70% of the calories in it are from fat, making it one of the fattiest plant foods in the world. But they don’t just contain any fat. The majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid a monounsaturated fatty acid. Oleic acid has been associated with reduced inflammation and shown to have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer.

The fats in avocado are also rather resistant to heat-induced oxidation, making avocado oil a healthy and safe choice for cooking. At the end of day Avocado has many health benefits.And there is no reason why you don’t eat it everyday.
