Avocado Improves Thyroid Function
Mmmmm I loooovvvee Avocado!!! Anyone else out there the same??
I remember the first time I tried it. I was about 13 and I was at a ceramics class with my mother on a Saturday morning and one of the other ladies had it. Back then, it was a rather pricey item to have, but she let me try some.
I thought it was awful and didn't understand why someone would pay so much for something so yukky!!!
I can safely say now that Avocado is definitely one of those foods that is an acquired taste. Right up there with Olives I think. The more you have them, the more you want them.
So lets have a look at why the experts think Avocado is so good for us:
1 cup (150g) of Avocado gives us:
🌱40% of our DRI in Fibre
🌱35% of our DRI in Copper (careful if you have allergies)
🌱30% of our DRI in Folate
🌱23% of our DRI in Vitamin B6
🌱21% of our DRI in Potassium
🌱21% of our DRI in Vitamin E
🌱20% of our DRI in Vitamin C
🌱6% of our DRI in Protein
🌱15% of our DRI in Vitamin B2
🌱16% of our DRI in Vitamin B3
🌱2% of our DRI in Calcium
🌱2% of our DRI in Iodine
🌱11% of our DRI in Magnesium
🌱11% of our DRI in Manganese
