Avocados are known for their high levels of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats (½ an avocado contains 8 grams). In addition, foods that are high in unsaturated fats are usually high in antioxidants. Avocados for example, contain antioxidants called polyphenols.
For a double dose of antioxidants, enjoy your guacamole with salsa. Research shows this combination leads to a greater absorption of carotenoids (vitamin A-like antioxidants) from the tomatoes in salsa.
