Posted by


Christopher Walker here back again. I’ve got a video today. I’m gonna be talking about
Avocados he’s one of my favorite foods
I eat these every single day and I’m gonna tell you the health benefits of why you should be doing the same today
You know another way to refer to avocados is a thermo grenade
It looks like a little grenade and it’s definitely thermo
we’re gonna talk about kind of break down the types of fats in the avocado and
The vitamin and mineral content that’s very easily
Digestible as well. So stay tuned. This is gonna be a good video
For anything like me then you love a good sliced up avocado
We like a bit of guacamole
Because you know that it can really take your meal to the next level
Now when trying to stay away from artificial preservatives and other ingredients that are found in baked goods and ice cream
avocados can actually be really beneficial in terms of a good substitute for
Certain ingredients now you could use them to bake a sweet potato and avocado cake
You could freeze them and toss them into a blender with some chocolate and bananas to make a homemade ice cream
There’s a lot of stuff you can do with
avocados that will
You know as a fruit keep you very very healthy, but keep you thermo
And they’re not very expensive compared to other fruits
If you go and you get them at a good spot, like, you know Trader Joe’s or that sort of thing
They typically have good organic avocados for a very good price
Avocados are a fruit. They are not a vegetable
it’s it’s a
fatty fruit
It’s what I would call a savory fruit and that’s because they’re very high in a type of fatty acid called a monounsaturated
Fat so avocados are basically one of the best sources of this monounsaturated fat extremely high in it
There are 71% monounsaturated fat 16 percent saturated and only 13% being PUFA
So it’s a very good ratio for the health in the human body
And this has been found in a lot of different research settings
So even though there are there is a slight amount of these polyunsaturated fats in it
It actually has a ton of vitamin E in it
Naturally you get a good quality avocado
Which is going to protect you from the oxidation of these polyunsaturated fats
Monounsaturated fats have been shown to help reduce inflammation. They’ve been shown to down-regulate a lot of biomarkers of chronic disease and even cancer
So the monounsaturated fats are cool
the polyunsaturated fats the ones you want to stay away from
And you want to make sure you get plenty of vitamin E and your natural food sources
So they’re not just really packed full of fat, but there’s also a ton of vitamins and minerals in these things
I mean the vitamin profile in
standard avocado consists of vitamins A C a host of whole all different B vitamins
Vitamin K choline and even a bit of betaine which is interesting
There are a couple of things about the micronutrient profile that I want you to know
the first is that there’s a
Large amount of vitamin K in avocado with 39% of vitamins the makeup of it being from vitamin K
This is actually great news because vitamin K is an essential nutrient and it’s very hard to find in good
bioavailable forms in the body that the body is able to use
So avocado is a very good form or it’s a good source for a good form of vitamin K
What’s also unique about avocados is their betaine and their choline content?
This is great for anyone who’s trying to stay thermo which means to pursue optimal health
Because with our environment being so full of estrogenic chemicals
We have a lot of that excess estrogen in our bodies and both choline and betaine have been shown to methylate estrogen
Now this means that both choline and betaine are able to help the body
Naturally get rid of this excess estrogen and bring it back to the homeostasis that it craves
So I know a lot of people are following the thermo diet here at thermo diet
For this channel, you know
This is good tip for anyone. Who’s a
Liver body type of thyroid body type of pituitary body type to use avocado oil as a thermo approved cooking oil
So it’s become a little bit difficult like when you are really getting into the thermo lifestyle
There’s not there’s a lot of like modern garbage food out there that you don’t want to consume
This includes a lot of cooking oils because a lot of them are polyunsaturated fats at one point
I was basically certain that you know
Only coconut oil and butter were the safest to cook with because they’re a lot more stable than polyunsaturated fatty acids
And they don’t oxidize and produce the same amount of free radicals as as polyunsaturated fats
But actually as my knowledge gets deeper. I definitely you know overlooked something the B secret has been
Basically hiding right in front of my face all along. One of the safest oils to cook with is avocado oil
This was a surprise to me because olive oil is known to become rancid at high temperatures
If you cook on high heat with olive oil, if you don’t get one, that’s not a good enough quality
So I just assumed that avocado oil was the same because they do have a similar fatty acid makeup in terms of the monounsaturated
fats
But that actually is not the point when you really look at the smoke points of these oils
The avocado oil actually has the highest smoke point of all of them
which means it’s the safest one for any kind of high heat cooking for you to use and that’s good news because
Avocado oil actually has a really nice refreshing taste from the avocado itself and actually tastes great with a nice grass-fed steak
Frying up some eggs, or you know cooking some potatoes in it or that sort of thing and I’m gonna taste awesome
So that’s a good little tip there for you
Hopefully you learned something here one way, you know, you could integrate avocados into your life is make a really healthy guacamole
Get some organic avocados so they don’t have any harmful pesticides on them
you could go just mash it up with some sea salt sand pepper cayenne paprika and even mix in some sriracha sauce and
This will give you a nice like refreshing but kind of spicy kick of a really good
Guacamole that you can kind of put on anything you want. I mean who has to be convinced that guacamole is good
Everyone loves going. All right. Hopefully you enjoyed the video
Learn something good from it
