If you want a delicious, satisfying, nutritious boost, try an avocado. These delicious foods are high in omega fatty acids, which help lower LDL cholesterol, decrease risk of heart disease, and lower levels of oxidative stress in the bloodstream. This lovely food also contains high levels of oleic acid which is a MUFA shown to provide important anti-inflammatory benefits to our body system.
The best part about avocados? They are delicious! Try them in smoothies, on toast, in a salad or on a sandwich in place of butter.
