Often avoided due to their relatively high fat content, Avocados are one of the best foods you can eat! Most of the fat is monounsaturated fat, which is considered to be a “good fat” and reduces levels of bad cholesterol in your blood and lowers your risk of stroke and heart disease.

Avocados contain high levels of B vitamins, which are known to increase energy, while vitamin B6 is important in the manufacture of sex hormones. They also contain an excellent source of potassium (more per weight than bananas) and are also rich in vitamins K, C & E.
