Reasons to Eat More Avocados

As if you needed another reason to eat sushi, one of its most popular ingredients, avocado, is actually an important staple of a healthy diet. Keep reading to learn more about the many benefits of this fruit:

avocados

Avocados are full of a wide range of vitamins. They are also a healthy source of potassium and healthy fat. Best of all, if you eat avocado with other types of foods, it actually makes it easier for the body to absorb and process nutrients. They are good for the eyes and help improve the way the body processes blood sugar. This fruit is good for the heart, has plenty of amino acids, and is a vegetarian-friendly source of protein.

Come to San Jose’s  House of Genji  today to get your avocado fix in one of our amazing sushi creations. With a menu full of healthy and nutritious options and a welcoming atmosphere, we cater to everything from a simple dinner to a birthday celebration. Call (408) 453-8120 to learn more.
