Tossed into a summer salad or served as a creamy dip, the avocado can complement any meal while also adding plenty of good nutrition. One-fifth of a medium avocado (1 ounce) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, as well as phytonutrients (parts of plants with disease-fighting compounds). Avocados, due to their high monounsaturated fat content, are also a healthy substitute for foods rich in saturated fat. Avocados are a bit high in calories, however, so eat them in moderation.
