Avocados

Not just for guacamole! Avocados are notorious for their monounsaturated fats that help decrease LDL, or bad cholesterol levels and raise healthy HDL cholesterol. Avocados can act as a “nutrient booster” by helping increase the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like Vitamins A, D, K and E. Oil can also be extracted from avocados, or alligator pears; avocado oil is good for cooking because it can tolerate high heat and has a ton of nutritional benefits.
