Our savvy dietitian finds the healthiest new foods and in-season ingredients, including the heart hero, avocado
Avocados are a hot ‘new’ health trend, despite having grown here since 1840! HFG is a big fan of avocados, which appear every month in our meal planner. Here’s why we love them …
HAVE AN AVO Creamy — and satisfying!
The 10g of fibre in just one medium avocado not only helps you feel full for longer — it comes with that irresistible creamy taste. You know they’re ready to devour when their skin turns purplish-black.
A quarter of a small avo has the same amount of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat as a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil. Avocados are also a source of vitamin C and vitamin E, which help protect and promote heart health.
Your eyes will thank you
A study has found that adding avocado to salads may boost the absorption of carotenoids from salads’ raw vegies. Carotenoids are antioxidants that protect your eyes from some of the harmful effects of ultraviolet light.
