Avocado

A Different Fruit A Day Personal Health Challenge


Oma and Reef both enjoy eating their Avocado straight out of the shell! Avocados are flavorful, rich and creamy.

The avocado is a tree native to Mexico and Central America. Also known as the alligator pear this fruit is botanically a large berry that contains a single seed.

Avocados are a great source of healthy fats and protein. They are also with monounsaturated fat which is able to help reduce LDL cholesterol and even lower the risk of stroke and heart disease. Because they contain a fair amount of protein too (4 grams), they make a great substitute for meat in a sandwich or dip.
