In addition, avocados have vitamin E that prevents cholesterol oxidization along with potassium that helps lower blood pressure.
You can eat 1 avocado daily. You can also use it as a healthy substitute for butter or cream on bread and toast. Avocados also go well in soups, sandwiches, salads and as a side dish.
