3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
The avocado (Persea americana) is a tree, long thought to have originated in South Central Mexico, classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae.Commonly, the fruit of the plant is also called an avocado (also alligator pear), which is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed known as a “pit” or a “stone”.
Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, they ripen after harvesting. Avocado trees are partially self-pollinatingand are often propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.
Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don’t shy away!
Avocado is Incredibly Nutritious. They Contain More Potassium Than Bananas. Avocado is Loaded With Heart-Healthy Monounsaturated Fatty Acids. Avocados Are Loaded With Fiber. Eating Avocados Can Lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels.
Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat. I personally don’t think that matters, but this is one of the reasons they are favored by many “old school” experts who still believe these things are inherently harmful.
