This week, as you’re planning out your meals… make sure to add some fresh avocados to the grocery list.
They’re tasty and versatile—especially during this time of year.
Plus, they contain loads of key vitamins and minerals—including vitamins C, E, K, and B6, potassium, and magnesium. Not to mention, they’re a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, as I discussed on page 6.
And now, a new, major study shows they provide POWERFUL protection against the No. 1 leading cause of death…
Avocados protect your heart?
Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. It accounts for all conditions that affect the heart or blood vessels, including strokes and heart attacks.
For this new study, Harvard researchers followed more than 110,000 men and women for about 30 years. Over that time, almost 14,000 of them developed heart disease or suffered a stroke.1
But those who ate at least half an avocado twice a week had a 16 percent lower risk of developing heart disease compared to those who rarely ate them.
They also had a 21 percent lower risk of developing coronary heart disease specifically. (This occurs when blood vessels that carry blood and oxygen to the heart are blocked, hardened, or narrowed.)
I don’t know about you, but that’s more than enough reason to include the world’s original “superfruit” on your weekly menu, year-round!
Even better? As I mentioned above, avocados are versatile.
You can whip up a big, homemade batch of guacamole. (Just make sure to ditch the chips and serve it with red peppers, celery, or even endive.)
You can add some slices of avocado to several main dishes—like fish tacos, along with fresh-off-the-vine tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and lime.
Or you can even enjoy the smooth, buttery taste straight off your spoon. (No judgement here!)
In fact, I demonstrate two delicious snacks—fresh guacamole and avocado fries—in my Cooking with Dr. Fred show. Be sure to follow me on YouTube (“The Dr. Fred Show”) and Instagram (@DrFredNYC).
