Avocados contain fiber and many vitamins. Due to its high monosaturated fat content, it can also help you lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and maintain your cells. But fat is fat. An avocado contains 240 calories, which is about 10 to 20 percent of a person’s ideal calorie intake, and consuming too many calories can lead to clogged arteries. If eating raw, stick to about half or 1 avocado per day (eg, no avocado slices).
Beets are a great source of vitamins and minerals. It’s also high in nitric oxide, which your body converts into nitrates, which help lower blood pressure. They are then converted into nitrosamines, which are also found in meat, which means they may increase your chances of developing diseases. For this reason, it’s best to avoid eating large amounts of beetroot and red meat at the same time.
