Avocados

I never liked avocados as a kid. In fact, I only started eating them about 2 years ago. Now, they’re my new favorite thing! I can’t get enough. We put them in everything from smoothies to dinners. Last night, I made a fantastic guacamole (1.5 avocado, 1/3 cup salsa, lime and lemon juice) to bring to a neighborhood party. And, I recently learned that you can even replace butter with avocados – it’s a 1:1 ratio.

Healthy fats

Avocados are so good for you because they have healthy fats. One avocado has 15 grams of unsaturated fat, which is good for your heart. The anti-inflammatory combination of the fats and carotenoids are helpful for relieving arthritis.

Good cholesterol

Avocados help promote good cholesterol, and lower bad cholesterol. So, if you have a family history of high cholesterol, think about adding avocados to your salads, salsa, and snacks. Southern Living tells more reasons to eat avocados.
