Delicious Super Bowl Easy Avocado Recipes with Healthy Benefits
Did you know buttery, green avocados are actually considered a fruit? Easy avocado recipes are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated (good) fat and one of the most nutrient-dense foods. High in fiber, and ounce for ounce, avocados top the chart among all fruits for folate, potassium, vitamin E, and magnesium. Avocados boast the same good health effects as olive oil and are rich in magnesium which is an essential nutrient for healthy bones.
