Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Avocado is one of the world’s most perfect foods. It’s incredibly delicious and so versatile. Avocado can be used to make dips, dressings, sauces, smoothies, soups and desserts, and is wonderful added to salads, sandwiches, stuffed with other veggies and fruits, or added as a topping to almost anything!

Avocado is also easily digested and contains over 25 essential nutrients including iron, magnesium, and essential fatty acids that help the body to function optimally. Avocados increase the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients, so they are a wonderful addition to green leafy salads to ensure proper absorption of all the vitamins and minerals.

They are an excellent source of glutathione, which helps to boost the immune system, strengthen the heart, rebuild the nervous system, and slow the aging process. The monounsaturated fats in avocados reverse insulin resistance, which helps to steady blood sugar levels.

Due to its nutritional profile, avocado is one of the closest foods to mother’s breast milk, being a complete and easily assimilated food with protein ratios that are equal to breast milk. Avocados are high in folate, which is essential for women in childbearing years and is also known to aid in preventing strokes and reducing the risk of heart disease. Try adding a couple avocados to your diet each week and enjoy the benefits of this delicious and health promoting food.

Today I have a wonderful, creamy dressing recipe to share with you that is perfect on any salad, or used as a light dip for vegetable crudités.
