Chinese Medicine recognizes the healing benefits of food. Food is classified by the nature, taste, and effect it has on the body.
Avocado is considered cool and sweet. Because of its cool energetic quality avocado is great at cooling the body when you are experiencing heat-like symptoms, such as hot flashes, dry skin, constipation, dry cough, and palpitations. It also nourshies the blood and can be a great addition to your diet if you suffer from anemia.
I like to eat avocado as a snack- just me, my spoon, and the avocado. Some prefer avocado on toast. You can even add it in a shake for breakfast.
