    I'm the first one to admit that I love avocados, but you need to remember that they are high in fat. Just like other foods, just because something is good for you doesn't mean that you can have it every day or at every meal. If this is the only fatty food you're having on a particular day or as part of a meal, then enjoy your avocado. It all depends on what the rest of your diet is comprised of; for instance, nuts are high in fat, so a meal that includes both nuts and avocado would most likely be too high in fat.

    I like them with fresh-squeezed lemon juice.

    Avocados are supposed to be useful for raising your HDL cholesterol level.

    I had one earlier today, mashed up with a banana, like baby food.
