Why Avocados Are a Superstar Food

Avocados Are Awesome

I am always amazed by the number of people who consider avocados “unhealthy” or “fattening” when the delicious reality is that they are true wonder foods.  Avocados are filled with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that lower bad (LDL) cholesterol while boosting good (HDL) cholesterol. This delicacy also offers a remarkably long list of other vital nutrients including a hefty dose of soluble fiber (that feeds the good bacteria in your gut!), vitamin E, B vitamins, numerous minerals, and special cholesterol-lowering plant substances called phytosterols. Avocados can also boast making it into the top 20 most potent antioxidant foods. It just doesn’t get more tasty and healthy than that!

Our latest testimonial:

Thank you so much for re-igniting my motivation to eat healthy again.  Your talk I heard years ago was the spark and this time was the fuel to get me seeking the information I need to be healthy.  Giving me the benefit of your wealth of knowledge about the workings of the human body is an immense gift and I thank you.  – Marguerite C. (September 2017)
