Avocado with Lime & Black Pepper Delight your taste buds — and give your heart a little TLC — with the creamy deliciousness of avocado. Avocados are a great source of good fat and fiber – both of which work to lower LDL cholesterol (remember "L" stands for "lousy") and amp up HDL cholesterol ("H" stands for "hero").
