Many of us view guacamole as just a high-calorie temptation; however, the avocado happens to be one of the most nutritious fruits on the planet.  Pound for pound, avocado contains more beneficial nutrients than just about any other food.  Guacamole is loaded with monounsaturated oils, fiber, protein, potassium and other minerals. You may recognize the popular dip at social gatherings or at many Mexican restaurants.

Just one cup of avocado contains 33% of the Daily Value for potassium (1166mg) and 63% of the Daily Value of dietary fiber (16 grams of fiber)!  It has a healthier type of fat that medical professionals believe can reduce risks of heart disease.

Happy Eating,
