Fat is good.......? It sure can be, for years people avoided eating avocados, as they were more fatty than other fruits and vegetables. This is true, an average avocado contains 30 grams of fat equaling a large order of fries.
However, avocados mostly contain '''good fat'' or monounsaturated fat . Thia type of fat has been found to actually lower cholesterol levels. You can incorporate avocado into your diet with moderation. By replacing mayonnaise with slices of avocado on your sandwich, you end up saving calories and replacing ''bad'' saturated fat with monounsaturated fat.
Now there are other fruits and vegetables that help you in the same way were talking about the avocado, but the avocado is the one that works for me, because I just happen to love the taste of avocados and guacamole which is made from fresh avocados, now if you have never taste some good avocados or guacamole I would love for you to try my recipe for Homemade Guacamole with freshly baked Wonton Chips it will really make you run to the supermarket to buy some more avocados to make some more.
