Ten of the most insanely stuffed avocado recipes that you may not have had the pleasure of trying. Enjoy!

Avocado is a pear-shaped green fruit with bumpy skin. It’s an incredibly healthy fruit, loaded with nutrients including 20 different vitamins and minerals. It is high in healthy fats and thus it doesn’t contain any cholesterol or sodium. It is also rich in fibre (7% in weight) which is known to reduce blood sugar spikes, aid in weight loss and lower the risk of many diseases. People who consume avocado often tend to be healthier than those who eat it rarely. By healthier, I mean they take in a higher percentage of nutrients and are half as likely to have metabolic syndrome, a known risk factor for diabetes and heart diseases. Avocados also contain antioxidants such as lutein and Zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. They reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.

The best thing about avocados is that they can be eaten in any way – from plain to baked – and used in all sorts of amazing recipes. Below are ten insanely stuffed and healthy avocado recipes:

Pour in the cooked quinoa and tomatoes into the pieces and mix evenly. Don’t mix vigorously unless you want it creamier. Fill the avocado shells with the mixture and add the cheese on top.
