Avocados Rock!!!

Looking for the perfect dip to bring to a party or snack on? Why not make some homemade guacamole.

Avocados not only taste good but are so good for you. They contain lutein which helps keep your eyes healthy; They have folate, Vitamin C and Vitamin E which can help fight cancer; Best of all it has 4 grams of heart healthy monounsaturated fat which actually lowers cholesterol and can help reduce extra weight around the belly.

An easy way to make a healthy guacamole is to add diced avocado to a bottle of your favorite salsa. As an extra bonus, the avocado will actually help your body absorb more of the cancer fighter lycopene from the tomatoes.
