Avocados

If you have been avoiding this green power fruit because you’ve heard about its high fat content, you’ll be happy to learn their fat may actually help quash between-meal hunger pangs. Avocado’s slowly digested fat helps your meal stay with you longer and their ample fiber (3 grams per quarter avocado) plus the fact that they’re 73% water make them a smart decision. Don’t just save them for salads and sandwiches. Toss them in omelets, smoothies, and into any southwestern dish, like these chicken tacos.
