Avocados: unsung superfoods

Excerpt from a Chicago Tribune article written by Julie Deardorff.

Avocados have good, unsatiurated fats which help with growth and development of the central nervous system and the brain. they're packed with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

Avocados play well with others: when you eat an avocado, it helps the body absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene, as well as lutein, from other foods.
