Bananas are one of the highest in sugar fruits out there! If you want a fruit smoothie in the AM, you should try using berries... And I would use EITHER milk OR yogurt, not both. The avocado is a great addition though!

Consume more nuts since they are high in monounsaturated fat. Have a go at dowsing olive oil on nourishments or cook with olive oil. It is additionally rich in monounsaturated unsaturated fats. The avocado is high in vitamin E so substitute these... (more)

PUFA's are bad, for the most part. Avocados contain a bit of this. Not a lot, but it's significant. Add to this the fact that my avocados sit on the warm counter for days if not a week or more during the summer, and you've likely got some... (more)

I think as long as they aren't brown and gross then they probably aren't too oxidized. Even if they are, fuck it they're delicious. Buttery pears.

You sure can freeze avocado but the texture won't be the same. Nutritionally it will be though so you can make smoothies, dressings, spreads etc no problem. There are two ways you can do it, either halved or pureed. Here's how it's done: Wash... (more)

It's more likely what you have to NOT eat. Are you strictly paleo or are you eating dairy, legumes, or grains? Those are the obvious culprits. After those are ruled out you may have to do an elimination diet to try to find out what's causing... (more)

I eat a decent amount of avocado, but I have seen a few times that you shouldn't eat too much of them because of the high Poly Unsaturated Fats? Are PUFA's good or bad? why? Thanks in advance!

Whole food PUFAs (i.e. avocados) are fine. There's more problems with refined and processed PUFAs (e.g. vegetable oil).
