In addition, “Avocados can act as a ‘nutrient booster’ by helping increase the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like Vitamins A, D, K and E.” To learn more about the California Avocado Commission, be sure to visit their website. The website also includes numerous avocado recipes including some with wine as an ingredient.
