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.

Acai (pronounced ah-sah-ee) for the un-initiated, is one of the most popular nutritional foods in the United States.
Used by tribes in the Amazon rainforest for its medicinal purposes, acai is a great source of nutrients for a healthier lifestyle.
At 3Natives, we believe in the hype around acai, which is why we highlight eight unique acai bowls on our menus throughout Florida.
What is Acai Fruit?
Acai is one of the best superfoods for your body and energy levels. Acai is a palm fruit found in the rainforests of South America and has been used for thousands of years.
Acai started to become popular in the west after its high nutritional content was discovered by scientists in the 1990’s.
These scientists noticed that the indigenous tribes were using the berries to treat certain diseases and strengthen the immune system. In historical context, acai was turned into a wine that could lower cholesterol levels and even reduce swelling in the prostate.
Health Benefits of Eating Acai
What is acai good for and why should you eat it?
Acai berries are very high in antioxidants and can reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in your blood. The berries are also great for strengthening the immune system and getting rid of free radicals when used within a day after cutting.
Some studies have shown that the Acai berry is good for the heart muscles. When eaten raw or turned into a juice, Acai berries are one of the best natural foods you can eat for sustained energy. Acai is also great for healthy skin and promotes weight loss.
