Avocados & Pumpkin Seeds
Posted Tuesday, September 3, 2013 at 6:48 AM

Hi,

Bought the 21 Day Vegan Kickstart book - and thought that avocados and most seeds were forbidden as containing too much fat.

Have been seeing recipes here that contain them.....???

We do suggest avoiding or limiting high-fat foods like nuts, seeds, and avocados, especially if weight loss is an issue or has plateaued. Otherwise, we would suggest a very small amount. Sometimes eating a very small amount is easier to do by adding a set amount to recipes as opposed to snacking on them ad libitum. These foods can have health benefits if eaten in small quantities.
