This highly nutritious fruit is a staple come summer time, and can be found locally. It’s easy to add to burgers, tacos, or salads and offers a plethora of vitamins as well as mono-unsaturated fats which aid good heart health.

Benefits of Avocado:

+ High dietary fiber
+ Contains tannin; a natural anti-inflammatory
+ High amounts of omega 6s and fatty acids lower bad cholesterol
+ Good source of antioxidants
+ Good source of Vitamin C, E & K
