Description:In its foreground, this image depicts two segments of a Florida avocado that had been cut from a fresh whole fruit. In the background, a whole avocado can be seen contained inside a stainless steel bowl. Also in the background, you can also see a pomegranate. The two cut sections still wore their sturdy bright green skins, which encased a bright yellow interior fruit, and just inside the outer skin, you’ll note a bright green color to the interior fruit.
Avocados are loaded with nutrients such as dietary fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, and folate. They're also cholesterol and sodium free. Avocados contain 60% more potassium per ounce than bananas. This fruit is an excellent source of monounsaturated fat.
