Avocados are nothing short of amazing and have one of the most powerful nutrient profiles of all foods.   A single 3.5 ounce serving will net you a quarter of your daily requirements for vitamin K (which helps you absorb vitamin D), 20% of what you need in a day for folate (YAY for brain health), 17% of vitamin C, and get this, more potassium than what a banana contains.

With all of these nutrients, it’s a smart idea to try to incorporate some avocado in your meals every single day.  They’re great additions to morning protein shakes/smoothies or even as a replacement for butter or oils in backed good recipes.  For this recipe – we’re letting it replace the mayo in a traditional egg salad (most store bought mayo is loaded with preservatives and other nasty ingredients) and can be a great merely served in a bowl or over a nice bed of romaine.  You will not be disappointed!
