three reasons to enjoy avocado

Improve Heart Health.While half an avocado may pack 161 calories and 14.75 grams of total fat, it is predominantly comprised of monounsaturated fats, which have been found to decrease total cholesterol when consumed regularly. Also, this food is a rich source of both potassium and folate.

Keith Klein, founder of the Institute of Eating Management & Relapse Prevention Center in Houston, says, “If on each of the 104 weekend days and 33 Friday nights of each year you consume an extra 300 calories – which isn’t hard to do – you’re taking in an extra 41,000 calories. That’s almost 12 extra pounds gained in a year.” Keep your clean-eating momentum going the entire week with these strategies:Entertain at home:Invite friends over for a healthful home-cooked meal instead of dining out. Not only will you save money and calories, but you’ll also encourage your friends to eat better.Have a bite before dining out:Stave off hunger and bad choices by having a small balanced snack first.Express conscious desire:Tell yourself, along with your dining companions, that you’re going to…
