With Love, Avocado

According to the American Heart Association, the avocado is one of the best foods to eat in order to maintain a healthy heart. Packed with nearly 20 vitamins and minerals (many of which can be easily absorbed into the body) and a great source of good fats like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats,  the avocado is a smart choice to add into any diet of anyone who may want to lower their risk of heart disease by helping to lower the levels of bad fats, such as saturated fat like found in butter. Stoutheart Fitness’ favorite way to eat avocado is in a guacamole. Check out the recipe below. Then, check out the video for 6 inspiring recipes for avocado from Goodful. We hope you enjoy.
