Avocados make for a very healthy food-choice, high in fiber, vitamins K, B6, and C, folate, and raw vegetable fats. Nutrient-dense, and cholesterol-free, this makes for a great dip to accompany your meal. Nutrient-dense foods and beverages provide vitamins, minerals, and other substances that may have positive health effects with relatively few calories. The term nutrient dense indicates that the nutrients and other beneficial substances in a food have not been diluted by the addition of calories from added solid fats, added sugars, or added refined starches, or by the solid fats naturally present in the food. Nutrient-dense foods and beverages are lean or low in solid fats, and minimize or exclude added solid fats, sugars, starches, and sodium. Ideally, they also are in forms that retain naturally occurring components, such as dietary fiber.
