You’ve seen avocado toast on your Instagram feed, but have you seen it in person?
Avocado Toast has become a popular trend in American health foods. In avocado toast recipes, unhealthy spreads such as butter are replaced with natural, ripe avocados. When mashed, avocados spread very similarly to butter, and are a much healthier alternative.
Why should you eat avocado toast? We all know it looks good on social media, but it can also make you feel better.

What Makes Avocado Toast Healthy?
A piece of toast topped with avocados delivers tons of health benefits over a fast-food breakfast or snack.
There are many benefits of avocados. Most notably, they deliver the healthy fat your body needs. Did you know that a medium avocado is made up of 75% monounsaturated fats? According to the American Heart Association, these healthy fats can reduce bad cholesterol levels and lower your risk of developing heart disease.
Avocados are high in fiber and are known to contain more than 20 different vitamins and minerals. They provide 10 grams of fiber, along with nutritious B-Vitamins, Vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium—just to name a few!
Because avocados are high in healthy fats and fiber, an average portion size of avocado toast delivers the right number of calories to leave you full, but not too full.
Fiber is known to aid in digestion and can aid in weight loss. Along with a healthy lifestyle and exercise, incorporating avocado toast into your diet may be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight.
