Everyone loves avocado nowadays and the trendiest way to eat it? A toast.
Let’s start off by trying to answer a simple question—is avocado itself healthy?
A single avocado contains 322 calories and 29 grams of fat. Those are pretty staggering numbers for a fruit, but they are heavily influenced by avocado’s high amount of healthy fat.
Seventy-five percent of an average-size avocado is made up of monounsaturated fats. According to the American Heart Association, monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease.
So, is avocado toast healthy? In most cases, yes. It may be higher in fat and calories than a simple piece of fruit, but it should also be able to keep you fuller longer. Avocado toast also contains a huge number of useful nutrients and antioxidants (especially when made on whole grain bread). However, it is possible to go overboard with avocado toast.
