Technically a fruit, versatile avocados are filled with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats as well as fiber and vitamin C. A 1-ounce serving (approximately 1/5 of a small avocado) has 50 calories and 4.5 total fat. Its creamy texture makes avocados a great sandwich spread, ideal for dips and dressings, and a delicious topping on tacos or salads.
