Avocados are a superfood in their own right. Packed with nutrients and flavor, the fruit is very heart-healthy. According to LiveStrong, one cup of cubed avocado contains 240 calories and 15 grams of monounsaturated fat – the good kind of fat. Healthy fats to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, which include vitamins A, D, E and K.

Guacamole is a great way to enjoy the avocado fruit. It tastes great as a dip or a condiment on a wide variety of dishes — from burgers and sandwiches, to chili and nachos.

For a super-healthy twist — try home mode avocado spread on flat bread with seeds:  sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and herbs spinach.
