Avocados are a fruit in the berry family.  They have very little carbohydrate and contain 4 grams of protein, which is the highest for any fruit. You can use them as a healthy, plant-based fat in many culinary applications from toast to sandwiches to dip.

Here are 5 messages from Lisa Andrews, MEd, RDN:

  1. Avocados grow in pairs on trees and are the Aztec sign for love and fertility.
  2. Avocados contain twice as much potassium than bananas (987 mg VS 487 mg).
  3. Avocados are ripest when the outer skin is black and gives a little bit to pressure when touched with a finger.
  4. Avocados are traditionally used in guacamole but can be added to salads or used as a butter substitute in recipes.
  5. Avocados are an excellent source of heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fat.
