Superfood: Avocado

Rich, creamy, and good for you!

Many people have avoided avocados because of their fat content. Time to think again!

Yes, avocados are creamy and satisfying– they’re rich in healthy monounsaturated fats. They’re also rich in carotenoids that can actually help your body absorb nutrients better. And they’re high in potassium, folate, lutein, and fiber.

Avocados are amazingly versatile–spread them on crackers, put them in salads, top a cassarole with them. You can even use them as a heart-healthy base for raw “pudding.”

Oh, and they’re delicious!
