Simple and Easy Avocado Snack

A serving of avocado only has 50 calories—much less than probably many of us expect given the former view of the avocado as being a high-calorie food. If you are eating the whole avocado, like in this recipe, 70 percent of those calories come from monounsaturated fats, the good kind of fat associated with lowering cholesterol.
