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.

Heart-friendly he­roes

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.
