Av’ an Avocado!

These little fruits are packed full of antioxidants, nutrient rich vitamins and minerals, all of which contribute to the overall health of our skin and body.

Avocados are rich in mono saturated fats, these are the ‘healthy fats’  which promote heart health and aid absorption of antioxidants, not to mention they are also low in sugar! They are also rich in nutrients which include protein, B vitamins, potassium and fibre (6-7g per half fruit!).

Additionally, avocados have been proven to promote eye health – they contain antioxidants which protect your eyes from stress damage, cataracts and macular degeneration.

Packed full of vitamin E they also enhance skin tone and hair strength.

Did you know that 70% of the antioxidants in avocados come from the seed?! A vital ingredient which helps to prevent heart disease and lower cholesterol! Try breaking it down and sprinkling it onto smoothie bowls, porridge or salads!
