TIP-TOP TICKER

Diabetic Living - - SNACKS -

Avo­ca­dos con­tain mo­noun­sat­u­rated fat, which can help re­duce choles­terol lev­els when it re­places some of the sat­u­rated fat in a diet. But the kilo­joules add up quickly: ½ a small av­o­cado equals

440 kilo­joules. Still, its fi­bre con­tent – 2 grams per ½ av­o­cado – slows di­ges­tion, so you’ll feel fuller for longer. Toss it into sal­ads or sal­sas, or mash for guacamole (just add lime juice to pre­vent brown­ing).
