Avocado toast is all the rage, and for good reason. A ripe avocado when you pair it with crispy, grainy bread and seasonings, you have a hearty, healthy breakfast meal, snack, light lunch or dinner that's sure to please.
Avocado is a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Most of the calories in avocado come from fat, don't shy away!
Pearl Powder is comprised of 30 to 80 percent calcium, magnesium, amino acids, and trace minerals including: zinc, iron, strontium, copper, selenium, silicon, titanium, and more. Pearl contains calcium carbonate, Omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium carbonate, calcium phosphate, ferric oxide and silica, and other important nutrients that a body needs.
When picking your avocados, choose one that is soft to the touch when squeezed, and doesn't have bruises or indentations.
