The best foods for your heart: Avocado

Add a bit of avocado to a sandwich or spinach salad to up the amount of heart-healthy fats in your diet. Packed with monounsaturated fat, avocados can help lower LDL levels while raising the amount of HDL cholesterol in your body. 

"Avocados are awesome," says Dr. Sinatra. "They allow for the absorption of other carotenoids-especially beta-carotene and lycopene-which are essential for heart health."
