Avocados have become one of the trendiest foods of the past few years. There’s no denying that avocados are delicious and refreshing but did you know they’re also incredibly healthy? Avocados are known to help control blood pressure, reduce stroke risk and protect against cancer. On top of that, they are also proven to promote eye health, eliminate bad breath and help fight aging. Need we say more?
