DID YOU KNOW? Avocados are rich in fiber — half an avocado (roughly 100g) packs 7 grams of fiber, which is 27% of the RDA. Fiber has been shown to have important benefits for weight loss, metabolic health and gut health.

About 25% of the fiber in avocado is soluble, which is known for feeding the friendly gut bacteria in your intestine. The number and type of bacteria is very important for optimal gut health and overall health.

If you’re dealing with IBS or weight loss resistance, I recommend replacing grain-based foods with high-fiber whole foods like avocados, vegetables and other fruits.

Here are a few way to incorporate avocados in your diet:

Halibut with Fresh Mango & Avocado Salsa

INGREDIENTS: (serves 2-3)
1 lb wild Pacific halibut*
1 avocado, chopped into small chunks
1 small mango, chopped into small chunks
1 tsp red onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp cilantro, basil or parsley, finely chopped
1 lime, juice only
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Avocado oil

*If you can’t find wild Pacific halibut or it’s too expensive, try wild cod or another similar fish. If you’re not a fan of fish, this salsa works great with chicken too!

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 400F and line baking dish with parchment paper.

2. Coat halibut with avocado oil and season with sea salt and black pepper.

3. Place halibut in oven and cook for 10-15-minutes (more time may be needed for thicker pieces of halibut). Halibut should be opaque and flake when cut with a fork.

4. While halibut is cooking, combine mango, avocado, red onion, fresh herbs, lime juice and seasoning in a bowl and mix until well combined.

5. When halibut is done, let rest for a few minutes then top with fresh mango & avocado salsa and serve.
