The Poor Man's Butter

Avocados

Every time I mention I eat four to six avocados a week, I hear all this gobbledygook about how fattening they are. I want to clear up this avocado debate right now. The fat in avocados is monounsaturated. This good fat is part of a healthy diet. It actually helps lower cholesterol. Avocados are rich in vitamins C and E, folic acid, and potassium. They also help you absorb beta-carotene from other foods. Half an avocado is only 150 calories, and it makes a perfect topping on a salad or your favorite whole-grain toast. Plus, the pit is a giant seed that grows into a gorgeous plant.

Peace,
Tony H.
