The Other Green Fruit: Avocados

Avocados are fruits with tons of flavor and richness to add to sandwiches, salads, or dips like guacamole.  They are a great source of monounsaturated fats that have been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.  They contain other nutritional components like thiamine, riboflavin, beta carotene, and vitamin C.  Avocados have the highest content of the carotenoid lutein, which is important for eye health.
