Food for Thought – Avocado

by Carla Griffin on May 22, 2013

 

Avocado

  

The avocado is a tree native to Central Mexico, classified in the flowering plant family Lauraceae. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
