In addition to the protein and amino acids from the juicy steak, the avocado provides more than 25 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. The avocado and olive oil also act as "nutrient boosters" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene and lutein. One-fifth of a medium avocado has a mere 50 calories and, even better, research suggests avocados are good for the eyes, help with weight loss and maintenance, are good for the heart and may lower cholesterol.
