Nutritionist Malena Perdomo, spokesperson for Aguacates Frescos - Saborea Uno Hoy, joins us to talk about living a heart-healthy lifestyle, by making smart “swaps” of bad fats for good fats in our daily diet with help from wonderful avocados! Did you know the predominant fat in avocado is unsaturated? According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, replacing saturated fats can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in the blood. Avocados can be a satisfying and yummy addition to a reduced-calorie diet when eaten in place of other fat sources. Thank you to Aguacates Frescos – Saborea Uno Hoy for sponsoring this episode.
