 Eggs-protect-against-diabetes

Hard-boiled eggs provide good fats called monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Replacing saturated and trans-fats as much as possible with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats stabilize your blood cholesterol levels and lower your overall risk of heart disease. These heart-healthy fats also regulate insulin in the blood, which keeps the blood sugar within a healthy range – especially beneficial if you have type 2 diabetes. More than two-thirds of the fat content of hard-boiled eggs comes from good monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Avocados also provide monounsaturated fat, which is a “good” fat that helps lower bad cholesterol, as long as you eat them in moderation. They are a source of a multitude of necessary vitamins including vitamins A, B6, niacin, C, K, and folate, and they have a full range of minerals and other trace elements including magnesium, iron, copper, and calcium – all of which boost brainpower and support the immune system.
