Want to know a really cool “fun fact” about avocados? They’re nutrient boosters! Since veggies have fat-soluble nutrients like beta carotene, vitamin D and E that need to be eaten with some fat in the meal in order to be absorbed, avocados serve as this healthy fat. The avocados enhance the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. So for example, this recipe also contains tomatoes which contain the fat soluble vitamin, beta carotene. The fat in the avocados helps your body to absorb beta carotene. So tomatoes and avocadoes make quite the nutrient powerhouse duo in this recipe! Beta carotene acts as a natural sunblock, so if you’re heading outside, this is the perfect recipe for you!

NOTE: It doesn’t take much fat to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins—just 5-10 nuts or ¼ of avocado should do the trick!
