My favorite berry

Ah, the avocado!

O riginal sin (check out its etymology)

Needless to say, avocados don't last long in my house. Good thing that high avocado intake has been shown to decrease total serum cholesterol levels and LDL (the bad cholesterol) while increasing HDL (good cholesterol).

Avocados are a good source of: potassium (more than a banana), vitamins B, E and K, iron and magnesium.

About the only bad thing one can say about avocados is that a majority of the calories comes from fat; however, it's monounsaturated so one shouldn't feel too guilty, in my opinion. :p
