Avocados are a fruit and have a wealth of nutritional benefits. The versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). They are naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. Avocados are 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. <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Plain Greek Yogurt, the Wise Choice</p></h4> Plain Greek yogurt is nutrient-packed and has many health benefits. Plain Greek Yogurt is lower in sugar than regular yogurt and by removing the whey produces a thicker, creamier yogurt with a tart taste. Rich in calcium and protein, greek yogurt is excellent for your bones and aids in reducing the risk of osteoporosis. On top of all that Greek Yogurt also contains probiotics, which are good bacteria that aid in gut health and help restore balance in your tummy. <h4><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Low Carb Chicken Burrito Bowls</p></h4> <h5>Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 5 minutes | Serves: 5</h5> <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Ingredients:</p></h5> * 2 ½ cups shredded chicken * 3 bell peppers * 1 medium onion * 1 lime * 2 avocados * 25 cherry tomatoes * 5 pepper jack cheese sticks * 1 ¼ cups plain greek yogurt * 1 ¼ cup salsa <h5><p style="color: rgba(20, 117, 135, 1)">Instructions:</p></h5> 1.
