Unless you have been living underneath a rock for the last few years, it is likely that you are aware of the hype around avocados. They are one of the trendiest foods around, and it seems like everyone is starting to include avocados in their diet.
It isn’t too surprising that avocados are so popular, as they taste great and they are good for your health. Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fats, which can help to improve cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. They also contain vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant, and vitamin B6, which is great for your skin.
Another one of the main benefits of avocados is how well they go with everything. You can include avocado in your breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as desserts and snacks, due to its unique, smooth flavor.
