Avocado Snack

 A plate of avocado snack

A serving of avocado only has 50 calories—much less than probably many of us expect given the former view of the avocado as being a high calorie food. If you are eating the whole avocado, like in this recipe, 70 percent of those calories come from monounsaturated fats, the good kind of fat associated with lowering cholesterol. You can read much more on avocados in a blog post I wrote a while back most popular fruit of the year and why you need to eat it
