Let us take the basic grilled mozzarella cheese sandwich and make it a super deluxe version adding fresh tomatoes and avocado. This sandwich is so filled with nutritional foods that it constitutes a 'good meal choice'. Choose a good nutritional bread to encase these food items. This recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, but you can substitute your cheese of choice. Mozzarella is great because it is so creamy when heated. Let's just mention a few facts about avocados and tomatoes next.
Do you know how good avocados are for you? An avocado is a versatile fruit that is high in good fat content, the one that you want to add to your diet. They are also high in omega 3 fatty acids. The monounsaturated fats found in this healthy fruit aid in improved heart health and can help to lower cholesterol. The sugar levels are low, and the percentage of protein is about 4 grams.
Not only that, avocados aid digestion and help maintain regularity. High in antioxidants as well, they help to reduce cell damage. Your vision can also benefit from eating avocados as they are rich in caotenoid lutein that reduces the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. The mix of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics also helps to reduce certain cancers, of the mouth, skin and prostrate. Avocados also aid in digestion. With such a list of benefits, if you are already eating avocados you will feel great about your food choice and if you are not, you may want to make them a part of your diet.
This grilled sandwich is one way. Most commonly, avocados are used in guacamole dip and served with salads. They are fantastic in a natural chocolate smoothie as well!
Tomatoes are stars in the world of health as well. They are diverse in their use, flavor and versatility. Research on tomatoes also indicates a lower risk of prostate cancer. This is because of the lycopene, related to Vitamin A that is found in the tomato.
