Some Health Benefits of Avocados :

 Digestion: Avo is packed with fiber.
They’re especially high in insoluble fiber, which is the kind that helps move waste through your body.
 Fiber keeps you regular and can prevent constipation.

Heart:
Most of the healthy fat in avocado is oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid.
This heart-healthy fat helps lower cardiovascular inflammation.
Avo also has a nutrient called beta-sitosterol, the plant version of cholesterol. Beta-sitosterol helps lower your cholesterol levels.

 Also contain antioxidants that are good for your eyes and brain, such as lutein and zeaxanthin.
 These antioxidants may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s

I personally love Avo, I literally eat with most of my meals
Eating it has helped me with my digestive system etc
Piece of advice from your truly, include avocado in your daily meal plan

Avocado Preparation:

Store them at room temperature, keeping in mind that they can take 4-5 days to ripen. To speed up the ripening process, put them in a paper bag along with an apple or banana. When the outside skins are black or dark purple and yield to gentle pressure, they’re ready to eat or refrigerate
