A veggie lovers dream

Hello my wonderfully delicious avocado! 

I love avocado. It adds a little something special to anything, like eggs & tomatoes shown here.  But it is it goes with so much that adding it to just about any meal is a easy. 

One serving is about one 5th of a medium avocado (or 1oz). A serving has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals making it a nutrient dense choice. 

Don't be afraid of the fat in an avocado.  It's the saturated fat that we want to be concerned with.  Avocados, due to their mono and polyunsaturated fat content, are a great substitution for foods rich in saturated fat.  

Sounds like a winning veggie to me!  Read more about avocados here -- Written by Emily Collins, owner of OnTrack Fitness
