Ounce-per-ounce they're packed with nutrients -- touting 60 percent more potassium than bananas -- and loaded with lutein which protects against prostate cancer and eye diseases says the food scientist at Wholly Guacamole, the leading guacamole maker in the U.S., http://www.whollyguac.com.

Studies show that their "good fats" effectively reduce cholesterol levels. And now, researchers at Ohio State University's Comprehensive Cancer Center say that avocados have cancer fighting power, against oral cancer and possibly other types of cancer.

Guacamole was originally invented by the Aztecs as a nutritious snack. In fact, three tablespoons of all natural guacamole with a hand full of carrots has just 94 calories -- that's less than a cup of low-fat milk!

Can't cook? You can find great guacamole in your grocery's produce or fresh deli section. Look for guacamole touting all-natural ingredients -- made from fresh avocados. Whether you dip it or spread it, adding guacamole is better than butter, sour cream or ranch. And because it's made with fruit, guacamole counts towards your "5-A-Day" to stay healthy plan.

For silly snacking fun... serve some guacamole giggles and pretend you're eating Magical Green Goo or Monster Poo. For a quick snack, try a plate smeared with guac as "grass" and add cherry tomato halves and carrots for "lady bugs and worms."
