Snack breaks are usually rife with high calorie foods full of saturated fat like cakes, cookies, candy bars, bubble tea, fried puffs, and chips. However, you’d be better off with an avocado instead, shares research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association. By replacing the unhealthy saturated fat with unsaturated fatty acids from the avocado, you could improve bad cholesterol levels as well as reduce the risk of heart disease. An avocado is as creamy and satiating as any snack, plus, unlike pastry, its phytonutrients offer your body a bounty of benefits, and you can use it in a variety of ways. Put it on toast with some zatar, mix it with some salad, or make a tasty guacamole—just be sure that you’re not scarfing down the dip with salty chips.
