How many of you knew that Avocados, also known as the Alligator Pear, contain all 18 essential amino acids needed to produce a complete protein! Avocados provide high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids which protect against inflammation. A medium Avocado is about 325 calories and has 4 grams of protein, 13.5 grams of fiber (high fiber) and 17 grams of carbohydrates. Half of the fat in an Avocado is oleic acid which makes it similar to olive oil.
One of the most popular Avocados, the Hass variety, all descend from a single tree.
