New analysis of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), indicates that consuming avocados may be associated with better diet quality and nutrient intake level, lower intake of added sugars, lower body weight, BMI and waist circumferences, higher “good cholesterol” levels and lower metabolic syndrome risk. These results were published in the January 2013 issue of Nutrition Journal (http://www.nutritionj.com/content/12/1/1).

Thrilled to read this. I don't like avocados. Many here have told me different ways and I still just don't like. When I made dairy kefir, I often mixed 1/2 an avocado into the smoothie but when I went dairy free, don't make smoothies anymore. A few days ago, I was in Publix and they had some on sale. Jimmy Moore (of nutritional ketosis) keeps talking about avocados, so I decided to buy some. I am blending 1/2 an avocado into my bone broth and the avocado gives it a real creaminess, reminiscent of a creamy soup. I don't notice the taste and I'm loving them this way.

I don't need any nutritional info to eat avocadoes. I just love 'em! Salad without avocado is like eating an egg without salt.
