Nutrition Values of Avocado

Avocados have diverse fats.[34] For a typical avocado:
High avocado intake was shown in one preliminary study to lower blood cholesterol levels. Specifically, after a seven-day diet rich in avocados, mild hypercholesterolemia patients showed a 17% decrease in total serum cholesterol levels. These subjects also showed a 22% decrease in both LDL (harmful cholesterol) and triglyceride levels and 11% increase in HDL (helpful cholesterol) levels.[37] A 2013 epidemiological report showed that American avocado consumers had better overall diet quality, nutrient levels, and reduced risk of metabolic syndrome.[38]
Extracts of avocado have been studied in laboratory research to assess potential for lowering risk of diabetes mellitus.[39]

Some times when i feel hungry i just go to my fridge and search for avocado and soon i grab it and cut it into half and pit the seed out and sprinkle some salt and pepper and eat direct ly with spoon .I really love it.Give a try.Ok lets go to the recipe
