Avocados are the sweethearts of the produce section.  Today is National Avocado Day. They are considered a super food. Avocados have 20 powerful vitamins and minerals. They’re the go-to ingredient for salads, dips, smoothies, and desserts. Avocados are low in sugar and high in monounsaturated fat, which is the good fat that helps lower cholesterol.  Avocados have many health benefits including improving digestion, decreasing risk of depression, and protection against cancer.
