Avocados have really come into the limelight. They aren’t just known for being the main ingredient in guacamole, but also for being a superfood.

Avocados are packed with nutrients. According to WebMd, there are “nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving.” Some of the vitamins and minerals include: folate, potassium, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and lutein. These fruits are also a fiber source and low in sugar. However, they are high in calories and fat (monounsaturated, which is considered a “good” fat, learn more about this here).

They have a creamy texture with a mild and somewhat earthy flavor. You can try eating them plain with a sprinkle of cracked salt and a dash of lime juice. Try them on eggs. Eat them in salads, sandwiches or smoothies. Avocados are versatile and offer an alternative to sandwich spreads and oils.
