did you know...?

 

Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat: The type of fat that may actually help to raise levels of HDL (“good”cholesterol) while lowering levels of LDL (“bad” cholesterol).

 

Avocados are the fruit with the highest protein content. One avocado can contain as much as 4 grams of protein!

 

You can ripen an avocado much faster if it’s placed in a brown paper bag along with a banana.

 

Avocados are great to bake with: Simply replace the oil or butter in a recipe with the same amount of mushed avocado.


Avocados are among the best foods to help fight stress due to their abundance of B vitamins.
