Avocados are a highly versatile fruit that is highly popular in Mexican and South American cuisines, but its health benefits are relatively underreported.
It is also quite a unique fruit in that it possesses an extremely large quantity of the healthy monounsaturated fat that the body requires to keep in shape.
