Today’s post is about a very special superfood we recommend to everyone as a healthy fat. The alligator pear or avocado is actually from the fruit family. While most fruits are high in carbs, this fruit is high in monounsaturated fat which is heart healthy and loaded with health benefits. The avocado is high in fiber and contains 20 different vitamins and minerals. It helps to lower cholesterol and triglycerides too. Most know that guacamole is made from avocados but they are also a great substitute for mayo on sandwiches, chicken/tuna and egg salad or toss into a salad instead of dressing. Let us show you how to start using this wonderful fruit!
