NUTRITION TIP: AVOCADOS

Avocados are a heart disease fighting machine! They are naturally free of sodium and cholesterol and contain “good” fats like MUFAs and PUFAs* which can help lower levels of “bad” fats in your body and reduce the risk of heart disease. Avocados also contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals along with plenty of fiber to keep you fuller longer.
