National Breakfast Month

September is National Breakfast Month. Breakfast affects our waistlines more than you may think. Eating breakfast has been shown to reduce the number of calories that we consume each day !

One food that I encourage you to add to breakfast is the avocado. I love using Hass Avocados in my breakfasts because they’re a nutrient-dense, plant based food full of good fats, fiber, and folate.  Avocados contain naturally good monounsaturated fat and are cholesterol free. Naturally good fats are an important part of a balanced diet.  The good fats also help promote satiety.

Avocados are great for everyone but they’re especially important for babies and pregnant moms as they contain so many critical nutrients.  In fact a Paper published by Nutrients Journal names avocados as an optimal first food for babies due to nutrient density, texture/consistency and their neutral flavor profile.

Here are some great recipes using this nutrition powerhouse:
