Avocado adds essential protein into our diets too! #Bonus
In addition to the good fat in avocados, you’ll be glad to know that it also plays a vital role in muscle-building via its impressive protein content.
A whole avocado fruit may not astound you with high protein numbers (as it only has 3-4 grams), but it does have the nine essential amino acids that serve as our body’s building blocks. These are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine – and they’re all found in avocado!
They are called ‘essential’ because our bodies require them in developing and healing muscles, cells, and body systems. Our bodies cannot produce these proteins, so they have to come from the food we consume.
This makes avocado a fitting accompaniment for fitness + muscle building/retention + weight loss goals! 🌮
