Avocados are mild and creamy, making them perfect for adding to all sorts of dishes. They're also high in healthy, monounsaturated fats that seem to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and boost the good cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. Avocados are also a good source of both insoluble and soluble fiber, as well as vitamin K, vitamin E, lutein (which helps protect the eyes), potassium (which helps to regulate blood pressure), and certain B vitamins.
Avocados make the perfect snack bowls. Therefore, stuffing them full of bruschetta chicken was one of the easiest decisions we've ever made. You don't need to take off the skin completely — we just think it's super pretty that way. Plus, it makes it easier to attack with a fork and knife.
