Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats is associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
Including fresh avocados in everyday healthy eating plans can help increase fruit and vegetable intake. Avocados are a delicious, heart-healthy, whole food source of naturally good fats.
Proud to support
Many fresh avocado recipes now carry the American Heart Association’s highly-recognized Heart-Check mark and are proudly featured in Spanish on SaboreaUnoHoy.com and in English on LoveOneToday.com. Certification by the American Heart Association of a recipe takes a wide variety of nutrients into account, including saturated fat, sodium and beneficial nutrients. Avocados contain naturally good (unsaturated) fat and are sodium and cholesterol free.
