FRUIT WEEK – Avocado

Avocado is different from most other fruits. Most fruits are high in carbs, while avocado is low in carbs and comprised mainly of healthy fats.

The majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat linked to reduced inflammation and better heart health. In addition to healthy fats, avocados are loaded with potassium, fiber and magnesium.
