SUPER SOFT AVOCADO PARATHA | AVOCADO RECIPES


Avacado Paratha
 
When i came to know the health benefits of avacado , I wanted to try some recipes with it.( Don’t forget to have a glance in the kitchen clinic section).I  tried a milk shake & it was too bitter in taste.I started running miles away when i see avacado in shops.Then i found ripe avacado wont taste bitter.I again browsed for some other recipes and came across this post. She has given the title as “super soft paratha” . I tried on the same day and yes it was really super soft. So i too gave the same title Winking smile . I made little changes in the actual recipe according to our taste.Thanks a lot shoba for helping me with this recipe. Smile. This paratha would be ideal for travel & lunch box.After trying this paratha successfully , i wish to make milk shake again Eye rolling smile.. Please try this recipe if u have ripe avacado in hand .. Please don’t take chance in trying with raw ones. It will taste bitter to the core Nyah-Nyah

Avocados have been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer.
Oral Cancer Defense
Research has shown that certain compounds in avocados are able to seek out pre-cancerous and cancerous oral cancer cells and destroy them without harming healthy cells.
Breast Cancer Protection
Avocado, like olive oil, is high in oleic acid, which has been shown to prevent breast cancer in numerous studies.
Eye Health
Avocados have more of the carotenoid lutein than any other commonly consumed fruit. Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts, two disabling age-related eye diseases.
Lower Cholesterol
Avocados are high in beta-sitosterol, a compound that has been shown to lower cholesterol levels. In one study, 45 volunteers experienced an average drop in cholesterol of 17% after eating avocados for only one week.
Heart Health
One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. Studies show that people who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower incidence of heart disease than those who don't. The vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione in avocado are also great for your heart.
Stroke Prevention
The high levels of folate in avocado are also protective against strokes. People who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower risk of stroke than those who don't.

Better Nutrient Absorption Research has found that certain nutrients are absorbed better when eaten with avocado. In one study, when participants ate a salad containing avocados, they absorbed five times the amount of carotenoids (a group of nutrients that includes lycopene and beta carotene) than those who didn't include avocados.
Glutathione Source
Avocados are an excellent source of glutathione, an important antioxidant that researchers say is important in preventing aging, cancer, and heart disease.
Vitamin E Powerhouse
Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health.
