Like tomatoes, avocados are also technically a fruit but are counted among the vegetables by the USDA. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, potassium, and vitamin E. Fats have a longer transit time through our digestive tract, Taylor Fazio, RD, CDN, a registered dietitian and wellness advisor at The Lanby in New York City, previously told POPSUGAR, which is what makes you feel so full after eating a meal or snack with avocado.

However, because avocados are such a rich source of fats, you don’t want this to be the only veggie you’re eating (for context, half an avocado will provide about 11 grams of fat, which is about one-sixth of your daily recommended intake). Still, they can make a fantastic part of a veggie snack — especially if you eat it via avocado toast, and top it with another veggie, like tomatoes, beets, sprouts, arugula, or cucumbers.
