When you think of chicken, egg, or even tuna salad, you likely think of a delicious mix of protein and mayonnaise.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of commercial mayonnaise may wreak havoc on your health. In fact, if you suffer from tired, lethargic afternoons after your typical lunch, you may be sinking your energy with overprocessed foods.

Think about your typical mid-day food choices.  If it’s usually loaded down with processed foods and refined carbohydrates, you will feel a whole lot better by swapping it and adding energizing foods instead.

Specifically, it’s vital to omit and avoid harmful ingredients like processed soybeans oils. Buyer beware: most mayo on the shelf, even so-called healthy ones, are loaded with soybean oil.

Next, you’ve got to replace the harmful ingredients with ones that actually improve health.

While processed foods bring you down, avocados support your health from head to toe.


Make the swap for avocados and you’ll get:

  • Carotenoids: When you think of carotenoids, you may think of carrots and other orange or red vegetables.  However, avocados are a great source. In fact, they contain a spectacular array of carotenoids including beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lutein, neochrome, neoxanthin, chrysanthemaxanthin, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and violaxanthin, many of which directly support eye health.  It’s this diverse and vast array of carotenoids that researchers believe is responsible for much of an avocado’s anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Carotenoid Absorption: Recent research has shown that absorption of two key carotenoid antioxidants, lycopene and beta-carotene, increases significantly when fresh avocado (or avocado oil) is added to otherwise avocado-free vegetables, such as in a salad. One cup of fresh avocado added to a salad of romaine lettuce, spinach, and carrots increased absorption of carotenoids from this salad between 200-400%.
  • Healthy Fats: Like other sources of healthy fats, avocados can help you get in the Keto Zone and improve your health. In fact, avocados themselves are a “fat bomb” at 85% fat from calories. Their fats are heart healthy, anti-inflammatory, and they promote healthy blood sugars.
  • Fiber: Avocados are pretty much made up of fat and fiber. In fact, at 3-4 grams of fiber per ½ cup, they are a great Keto Zone fiber option, promoting gut health, blood sugar control, and optimal cholesterol levels (1).
  • Lower weight and BMI: In broad food intake studies, participants that routinely eat avocados have been determined to be lower in weight and lower in body mass index than non-consumers (2). Of course, this can be due to a variety of factors. But, we know high-fat foods like avocados fill you up and help you eat less.
  • Healthy Cells: Avocados (specifically avocado extract) have been studied and determined to help prevent the occurrence of cellular over-growth in the mouth, skin, breast and prostate gland.  These results are likely due to the unusual mix of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients. Interestingly, in lab studies avocado extract actually works to increase oxidative stress in unhealthy cells in order to induce programmed cell death cycle (apoptosis), lessening the unhealthy cell numbers (3).
  • Vitamin E: Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintain overall health.  Specifically, it is an antioxidant that supports brain, cardiovascular, and respiratory health.
