Thanks to this nutritional mix , both fruits are associated with heart protection – just not worth abusing because of calories. “The consumption limit will depend on individual characteristics and the level of physical activity, ” explains Larissa. While the avocado falls best on salty dishes, the avocado combines with desserts. What will be your request?
