Unsung superfoods you should be eating
Many of us tend to eat what we know and what we can pronounce and prepare. To help steer your cart in a new direction, try incorporating these healthful foods that you probably aren't eating—but should be—into your diet. --Julie Deardorff

Don't shun this creamy fruit because of the fat content. Avocados have good, unsaturated fats which help with growth and development of the central nervous system and the brain. They're packed with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. And they play well with others; when you eat an avocado, it helps the body absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene, as well as lutein, from other foods.
Try them: Use avocado in place of mayonnaise. Add it to smoothies, salad, salsa, soups or sandwiches.
