Fruit of a tree originating in Central and South America, the avocado is prized for its tender flesh.
A coreless avocado weighs about 150 g
Its nutritional value is about:
Carbohydrates: 2.1 g
Protein: 4.7 g
But if the avocado is fat, the lipids it contains are "good" fat for cardiovascular health and especially it is very rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.
It has antioxidant properties, it contains phytosterols which are a cardiac protector.
The GI is very low. It is not shocking to meet people who consume 1 avocado per day. It is true that it is fat but the quality of the monounsaturated lipids makes that you can consume 5/6 avocados a week.
