Super Berry: Avocado

Did you know an avocado is considered a berry with one large seed? Surprise! When it comes to avocados, most of us immediately think about guacamole, but this super food has much more to offer, including dietary benefits you should take advantage of!

There are different types of avocados, the most popular being a “Hass Avocado”, which can weigh anywhere from 8 ounces to 3 pounds! Avocados are heart-healthy, may help reduce cholesterol, triglycerides, decrease LDL (the bad) and increase HDL (the good). They can be used as oil for cooking, a replacement for mayonnaise, and as a healthy ingredient in smoothies. The main oil in avocado (Oleic Acid) is the same oil in olive oil and is considered a monounsaturated fat which has even been known to help reduce inflammation.
