“In a time when everyone loves to devour this green fruit, avocados make for a great breakfast side dish or addition to salads.” Avocados have fiber and monounsaturated fat to keep the belly feeling full, aid digestion and increase the absorption of nutrients. They’ve also been linked with blood sugar and weight control. Research has even found that people who eat avocados on the regular have smaller waistlines than those who don’t. Bring on the guacamole!

Body Sculpt with Kettlebells
Kettlebell training promotes fat loss, toning of major muscle groups and greater functional strength, while requiring less time than its dumbbell counterpart.
“It takes multiple small and large muscle groups to redirect movement while maintaining control with a kettlebell, requiring more muscle recruitment than with a traditional dumbbell; it’s because its shape provides unbalanced weight resistance that strengthens a multitude of different muscles,” explains Julie Joffrion, owner of All-Inclusive Health, in New Orleans.
