A few useful avocado facts
1. Despite their luxurious and creamy texture, one avocado boasts more than 9 g of fibre — more than any other fruit.
2. Half an avocado has more potassium than a banana and lots of brain-protecting folate.
3. Avocados also have the mono- and polyunsaturated “good” fats that are recommended as part of a healthy diet. Bonus: avocado oil may significantly increase the amount of collagen in skin, which may help improve your skin tone and its elasticity.
