Nutrition Info on the Avocado:

Avocados, yes they’re high in fat, consisting of roughly 20% fat content, and 350 calories in every medium sized avocado. Be sure when you’re on a diet to eat no more than ¼ of an Avocado at a time.

Including healthy fats, such as from the avocado, in your diet everyday is vital for long-term health, weight loss and weight loss maintenance. Not only does fat signal the brain to stop eating therefore helping you to keep on top of total food consumption, but eating your healthy fats can assist in lowering cholesterol levels. The majority of the fat content from the avocado is monosaturated fat. Including monosaturated fat in your diet will help to decrease ‘bad cholesterol’ ie low density lipoproteins, and increase, ‘good cholesterol’ ie high density lipoproteins.

Compile the salad ingredients. Squeeze with the juice of the lime and a little lemon juice, a light drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle with the zest and season with sea salt.
