Avocados are full of healthy fats
Over 75% of the fat content in an avocado is great for your heart! In fact, having more of these healthy unsaturated fats is better for your heart than eating low fat!

They're nutrient dense
Avocados are packed with beneficial nutrients to enhance the nutrient quality of your meals.

Avocado boosts your eye health
Avocados contain 81mg of lutein & zeaxanthin, antioxidants known to support eye health as we age.

They have more potassium than a banana!
Bananas are known for their potassium content, but per 100g, the avocado fruit contains 485mg of potassium, that's 127mg more than bananas!

They're super versatile
Known for guacamole, dips, and other savoury dishes, yet avocados are appearing more and more in sweet dishes too. Think chocolate mousse, ganache, smoothies and ice cream!

The salad looks pretty, but the avocado looks better. I buy one each week, even though they have gotten out of sight in price here in the states. said...

Here on the mountain many avocado trees grow...

At the St. Bernard's Hotel is an avocado tree first planted...many, many, many years ago - 86 years ago to be exact...and it's still going strong.
