Toast with Turkey Rashers, Avocado and Tomatoes Recipe-Good For Muscle Building
The amazing avocado is our featured ingredient for this recipe. It is wonderful for muscle building.
Featured Ingredient: Avocado
The amazing avocado is a muscle building food! Once upon a time avocados were kept out of muscle building diets, but not anymore. They have a unique combination of 20 different nutrients, which are essential for us. The type of fat that they have, mono-unsaturated fat, can actually move fat away from you mid-section.
On top of everything else, avocados contain mannoheptulose – this is a sugar that actually dulls insulin release. Why is this good? Because high insulin levels lead to fat storage, and even eventually to diabetes.
