Avocado Lovers Rejoice! - Our fellow farmers on island have some great fruit to share with you. Thankfully, our climate and soils support a number of different varieties of this familiar favorite, and I have personally never met a locally grown avocado I didn't like. Get some while the season is here!
Avocados have a lot of calories. The recommended serving size is smaller than you’d expect: 1/3 of a medium avocado (50 grams or 1.7 ounces). One ounce has 50 calories.
Avocados are high in fat. But it's monounsaturated fat, which is a "good" fat that helps lower bad cholesterol, as long as you eat them in moderation.
Avocados are low in sugar. And they contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. In one study, people who added a fresh avocado half to their lunch were less interested in eating during the next 3 hours than those who didn’t have the fruit.
