Avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated
fatty acids and is naturally nutrient-dense, containing nearly 20 vitamins and minerals,
especially B6 which counteracts cortisol (stress hormone) contributing to weight gain via
belly fat stores.
Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don’t shy away! Avocados are
full of healthy, beneficial fats that help to keep you full and satiated. When you consume
fat, your brain receives a signal to turn off your appetite. Eating fat slows the breakdown of
carbohydrates, which helps to keep sugar levels in the blood stable.
Some Health benefits: Nutrient rich & loaded with fibre, healthy for the heart, good for
vision & osteoporosis prevention, they contain more potassium than bananas, may help
lower cholesterol & balance triglyceride levels.
RECIPE TIP: Spread avocado on your toast for breakfast, with tomato, a protein of your
choice. Sprinkle some dukkah or other spice for flavour.
