10 healthy ways to use avocado (besides guacamole)

Not only is avocado creamy and delicious, it is also packed with health benefits.

We love them and often include them in our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plans. They are full of mono-unsaturated fats (these are the good fats), which can help to boost milk supply, keep you feeling full and lose weight.

Did you know that good fats (unsaturated) can help to burn bad fats (saturated)?
