How Healthy are Avocados?

Add Avocados to your diet

According to an email from Healthy Tips, a study has found that a diet including avocados can help get cholesterol levels into the healthy range. In the study after 7 days LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglyceride levels dropped by 22 percent and HDL ("good") cholesterol shot up 11 percent. Avocados are a good source of vitamin K, dietary fiber, potassium, and folate. Avocados are very low in sodium and cholesterol-free but they do contain fat so eat in moderation.

This is just another tip for families to take into consideration when planning a healthier lifestyle.  We need to stop dieting and start "eating to live" not "living to eat".  Educate yourself and then take action toward a healthier change for the sake of everyone you love. I am truly trying very hard to make that healthy change in my families' eating habits.
