Celebrating Good Fats as a Key Part of Daily Nutrition

Good fats are called monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Eating good fats instead of saturated

 fats may lower your risk of heart disease. Avocados are a great source of good fats. Elevate lunchtime soups, salads, and sandwiches with a touch of avocado, or use mashed avocado in tuna, egg and chicken salads to create flavorful, cholesterol-free alternatives.

Nearly 30 million Americans live with diabetes. The U.S. Latino community is disproportionally affected

by this disease, with individuals nearly twice as likely to develop diabetes as non-Latino whites.
