Avocados fit perfectly into a Mediterranean-style eating plan-from both a nutritional and culinary perspective. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, in most studies, traditional Mediterranean eating patterns are associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Mediterranean diets are higher in fat than U.S. eating patterns, however, more than half of the fat comes from monounsaturated fats, found in olive oil and avocados. Unlike saturated fats, monounsaturated fats don't raise blood cholesterol. In addition, Mediterranean meals are centered around fruits, vegetables and whole grains which contribute a significant amount of fiber and nutrients.
