According to The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, avocados are a healthful fat that can help women achieve a balanced diet and have a healthy pregnancy. While pregnant with my son I ate so many avocados in all of its possible forms, and then again while on my fitness journey to lose the pregnancy weight after his birth. Now that I am 2 months postpartum with my third and nursing, I have included more avocados into my diet. Because let's face it, as a Dominicana aguacates are already a household staple.
I recently, thanks to Google, learned how to poach an egg! My new go-to breakfast is a poached egg atop of either guacamole or a fresh mashed avocado, with a little pink himalayan salt, and pepper on whole wheat toast. It is super simple and easy to make but so delicious! Healthy avocados contain naturally good fats which are known to be important for normal growth and development of the baby’s central nervous system and brain.
Fresh avocados provide a good source of folate per serving which is important for developing a baby’s brain function and reducing the risk for premature births and birth defects. There are so many ways to prepare avocados, you can get lost in the sea of recipes on Pinterest of check out Soborea Uno Hoy for appetizing recipes. Healthy avocados are a nutrient-rich, versatile fruit that can be eaten alone or used in a variety of tasty recipes – from soups to salads to smoothies – all of which can fit into a sensible eating plan.
Another delicious recipe featuring Aguacates Frescos that I am dying to try can be found on www.SaboreaUnoHoy.com. It is a fresh Cuban-style Grilled Salmon with Avocado, Baby Tomato and Herb Salsa, a great dinner option not only Mami can enjoy but the whole family as well. Be sure to visit Aguacates Frescos – Saborea Uno Hoy website for more information about the maternal health benefits of fresh avocados.
