For Your Overall Health, Consider the Mighty Avocado

Study after study has shown that the best way to stay healthy is to eat a plant-based diet. That doesn’t necessarily mean strictly vegetarian. Consider a meal plan focused on natural foods, especially plants, and minimal meat, processed foods, and dairy products.

One fruit that our concierge primary care doctors would like to suggest you incorporate into your diet is the avocado. (And yes it is technically a fruit, even though people often think of it as a vegetable.) That’s because there’s a wealth of health-giving nutrients packed into one avocado. From heart health to improved digestion to better eyesight, avocados have long had a reputation as a powerhouse superfood.

Tea Leads to Good Overall Health

To our concierge family practice doctors in Jupiter, Florida, tea is the second-best beverage you can drink for good health. It comes as a close second, of course, to drinking water.
