Benefits of Avocados

Most people think of avocados as fatty and thus fattening, but that’s not the case! Actually, one study looked at the lifestyle of people who eat avocados and found the majority to weigh less than people who did not eat avocados. The avocado fruit contains a great deal of monounsaturated fatty acids and is even considered a ‘superfood’ by some. Avocados are also filled with potassium (surprisingly more so than bananas) and fiber and can lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. An avocado contains an average of 160 calories which is equivalent to the calories contained by several unhealthy snacks. Also, an avocado qualifies as a Paleo-friendly ingredient.
