They Lessen Your Dependence on Meat

Let’s get the easy one out of the way first. For many, avocados act as a filling, plant based substitute for meat. It’s not a perfect substitute, but incorporating more avocados into your diet is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, eat less meat, and save on your grocery bill.

They Can Stabilize Your Blood Sugar

Avocados are full of monounsaturated fats. What does that mean? Well, among other things, it actually slows down your digestion and helps prevent your blood sugar from unnaturally spiking after a meal. A steady diet of fats may even steady blood sugar levels long term, too. Not all heroes wear capes.
