Remember when you start taking care of the sacred temple that is your body, the supers powers that your Womazing self holds within, will slowly start coming out. So stop saying tomorrow and start embracing the transformation on this wonderful Tuesday.

In the past weeks we have visited two major ingredients in the recipe for a healthy life. The first being the essential steps of self-care, because as they say, one cannot take care of other they are capable till of taking care of themselves. Think about it. The next is indulging your body and mind in the real fountain of youth – water. This week we would like to give you ladies a little fitness food tip.
Let’s face it, we all have a love/hate relationship when it comes to food. We need it to live, but sometimes what we crave isn’t necessarily what is healthiest for us. Well we here at Womazing have one word for you – Avocado.

Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.” – Web MD

The avocado is may be small, but its nutritional value is quite grand. The chart below gives random, but beneficial fact s on what this little, green health monster could do for you.

In short, avocados are not only delicious but incredibly nutritious for us. And with summer here, it’s perfect weather for them to grow and there are a plethora of impeccable recipes that could compliment any diet. For example, a personal favorite snack includes half an avocado with fresh salsa on top. I find it simple, but enjoyable and very healthy. Avocados are one of the most nutritious fruits you can select for a healthy diet. The fruit is also one of the most versatile. You can eat it fresh or use it as a salad ingredient or sandwich filling. You can also make a dip, smoothie, juice or puree from avocado. The fruit is quite filling and is regarded as a complete food.

Regular consumption of avocados can help you boost your BMR (basal metabolic rate) which facilitates weight loss endeavors.” – FitDay.com

Making a lifestyle for the better isn’t always easy, but no one said you have to do it all at once. Start small and every little step will turn into a stride towards greatness. We are all Womazing ladies, so let’s start embracing that inner heroine today!
