Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fat (which can improve cholesterol levels, decrease risk of heart disease, and benefit brain activity), vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and vitamin B6 (which promotes healthy skin and serves as a back-up fuel). While avocados are a great addition to just about any healthy recipe, just remember not to overdo it—this fruit can be fairly high in calories for those watching their intake. Avocados make just about anything better, from salads to veggie-packed salsas to smoothies. Smear avocados onto toast, mash ’em into guacamole, or top your morning eggs with a couple slices—just make sure they’re perfectly ripe. Here are our favorite avocado recipes.
