The avocado is a fruit that grows on the avocado tree found mainly in Central America. It is green from the exterior with the inner flesh being greenish yellow with a large seed in the middle. It is a nutritious food high in fat content which is unsaturated considered as healthy as well as being rich in vitamins (B, E and K) and potassium.

A medium sized avocado will contain approximately 300 to 325 calories and as such two or three avocados will provide enough calories as much as a small meal. Fruits like avocados should be included in the diet especially by people who are vegetarians as they supply much of the fat requirements of the body.

A diet consisting of whole grains, pulses and lentils, vegetables including green leafy ones, nuts and milk and dairy products can be ideally complemented with fruits like avocados which are buttery in nature more so if one is lactose intolerant.
