Half of a medium avocado has 114 calories and 10 grams of fat.  About 64% of the fat in avocados is monounsaturated, which lowers LD (bad) cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of a heart attack or stroke.   The fruit supplies a healthy array of vitamins and minerals not usually found together in one place.  These include fiber, potassium,  folate, and vitamins B6, C, E, and K.  They also contain lutein, zeaxanthin and carotenoids linked to eye health.  Guacamole dip has the same nutrients. You will find a delicious recipe for Guacamole dip on Page 8 of “Comfort Cooking Without Grains & Refined Sugars.”
