FIT FOOD: AVOCADO
What exactly, will Avocado do for you?
Avocados serve up a variety of vitamins - a whopping 20 to be exact.
They’re also an excellent source of healthy fats (monounsaturated and omega-3s), which help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins (like A, D, E) and carotenoids, a type of antioxidant.
Avocados contain phytosterols, too, which have anti-inflammatory properties and help keep cholesteron level and heart disease risk in check.
One quarter of an avocado only has about 80 calories and 7g of fat, but very little saturated fat - so that fat’s wholly to your body’s benefit.
