Avocados are a healthy fat that has a whole host of health benefits. Eating avocados can both lower cardiovascular inflammation and lower your cholesterol levels – a perfect combination for keeping your heart healthy and avoiding heart disease.

There’s research that shows a link between depression and low levels of folate. Considering avocados contain a considerable amount of folate, it might mean that they’re good for your mind as well as your body. Folate is good for everyone, but especially pregnant women! If you’re pregnant, adding more avocado to your diet could be good for both you and your baby.

You can eat avocados mashed onto toast, in salads, or in vegetable sushi. Avocado is also the main ingredient in guacamole, which is delicious as a dip or a sandwich filling.
