Some Fats are Good for You
Avocados taste so good because there’s good fat in there. And they’re healthy for the very same reason.
- Avocados are the #1 fresh produce source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats — the “good fats” that can help reduce bad cholesterol and lower risk of heart disease and stroke.
- They’re nutrient boosters, too. Avocados help our bodies absorb nutrients from other foods, such as vitamins A, D, E and K, and antioxidants like lutein, which has been shown to promote eye health and may protect against macular degeneration.
Other good sources of monounsaturated fat include nuts and oils made from plants, such as olive and canola oils.
