Avocados provide a healthy dose of belly fat-melting monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) as well as 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, and folic acid. A recent CDC health study found that people who ate them frequently had more nutritious diets overall, ate less sugar, and had a lower BMI and waist circumference. A new UCLA study found that participants who topped their burgers with a slice of Hass avocado had lower levels of inflammation and less reduction in blood flow than those who ate their burgers without it. Not a fan? Blend them to smoothies and you’ll also add body and creamy texture.
