Your Avocado Addiction Is Good For You!
If you’ve fallen into the hipster foodie band wagon and love to indulge in some toast with avocado spread on top, you’re in luck! Though this is a healthy option for obvious reason, the American Heart Association has officially backed it up with some research.
According to their findings published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, eating an entire avocado every day can dramatically improve heart health! The study involved 45 overweight, yet healthy adults. Over the course of two weeks their average American carb heavy and saturated fat diet was monitored. Then for the following five weeks their diet was switched to one of two diets: a low fat (avocado) or moderate fat diet (like sunflower and canola oil).
