Avocado oil

This buttery oil has more monounsaturated fat – which research shows helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure – than olive oil. Adding it to vegetables may also increase the number of nutrients you absorb.

Try it: With a superhigh smoke point, avocado is ideal for grilling meat, sautéing vegetables, and searing fish. Stir it into soups, or drizzle it over pizza.
