Add Avocado to Your Menu
Ways to use avocados vary greatly. You can chop one up to top a salad - the creamy consistency balances the crunch of a salad nicely. Avocados go great in dips like guacamole, and they're a wonderful substitute for saturated fat-rich mayo on a sandwich. Their creamy consistency makes them a perfect first fruit for babies when mashed or diced, plus they're rich in folate, a necessary nutrient for a healthy pregnancy. It doesn't take much avocado to reap health benefits. Two or three thin slices equal about an ounce, which packs just 50 calories. Add avocados to your healthy diet plan, and you'll be adding vitamins, minerals and healthy fats - plus, they'll fill you up and keep you satisfied!
