Avocado's versatility is not the only feature of this delicious fruit. Besides being a great addition to fresh salads, it can also be baked. Its healthy fats are beneficial in regulating cholesterol levels and supporting heart health while its phytonutrients show anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Along with eggs, avocado provides a decent serving of proteins, crucial for healthy musculature and tissue repair. Sprinkled with nutritious fresh parsley and spicy red chili pepper flakes, this dish is a great way to start your days!
