Slice and Dice

Avocados contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and are loaded with antioxidants and potassium (more per serving than bananas).

To easily dice, start with an 8- to 10-inch chef’s knife. Insert it into the top, where the stem was (it will be a darker area), and gently press down until you reach the pit.
