Why Avocados Are Super

Avocados are often called a superfood because they are packed with nutrients. Here’s why they’re so special:

  • Healthy Fats: Avocados are full of healthy fats. Unlike the fats in junk food, the fat in avocados is good for you. It’s called monounsaturated fat, which helps keep your heart healthy.

  • Vitamins and Minerals: Avocados are loaded with vitamins, especially vitamin E, which is great for your skin and helps repair your cells. They’re also high in potassium, which is good for your muscles and heart.

  • Omega-3: These fats help keep your brain and eyes in top shape.

  • Fibre: With lots of fibre, avocados help with digestion and keep you feeling full longer.

The Hass Avocado

Most avocados you see in the store are Hass avocados. They have a rich, creamy texture that’s perfect for making guacamole or spreading on toast. Did you know that Hass avocados originally came from California? That’s why California is known for its avocado production.
