Every now and then I get a question from someone asking if avocados are okay to eat. Well, I’ve yet to meet anyone with a health condition who won’t benefit from an avocado.
Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the pinnacle foods, one of the top foods in the world to eat for excellent food. Other foods that belong in the group are kale, blueberries, blackberries, dark plums, and fresh, wild-caught salmon. These are all pinnacle foods, and don’t let anyone tell you not to eat them.
Avocado is a perfect food. When you analyze the kind of fats in avocado, and the extremely high mineral and vitamin content, it’s clear that they are a very healthy food. Avocados are a superior food, suitable for meat-eaters, vegetarians, and vegans alike.
There is a lot you can do with avocados. You can bake with them, you can use them to make smoothies, and even as a base for ice cream. Avocado hummus is popular, as is avocado toast.

Avocados are proven to have so many benefits for your health, especially when it comes to really improving your gut function. If you eat an apple a day and an avocado per day, you’re really adding to your lifespan, as far as I’m concerned.
Some people have been told not to eat tomatoes because they’re sweet. I consider that dumb advice. Everything has got some sweetness about it. If you’re going to avoid every food because it tastes a bit sweet, you’re going to end up eating very little. Use common sense. Tomatoes are perfectly fine to eat.
Back in the 50s, Dr. Norman Childers recommended that people avoid all nightshade (Solanaceae) vegetables. He made this recommendation based on the assumption that they caused inflammation. A lot of people are avoiding potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, and chili peppers, based on the assumption that they cause inflammation in the body. Yet, I haven’t found one shred of evidence showing that Solanaceae increase inflammation in the body.
Just like avocado and tomatoes, I think you’re perfectly fine to eat Solanaceae plants.
