Avocados are beautiful. When ripe, they have soft green and cream toned flesh the texture of firm pudding surrounding a large rusty brown seed. The leathery rind is a natural bowl, holding a nutritious treasure... all you need is a spoon. The avocado is a unique fruit in that it stores its energy as almost 20% fat, (mostly monounsaturated) rather than sugar as most fruits do. Luckily for us this filling fruit offers 60% more potassium than a banana plus it has the highest fiber and folate per ounce of any fruit, along with being good source of B6, C and E.
