This recipe is so simple and is a great source of essential fats, protein & antioxidants.
Avocados have creamy, buttery flesh and are the only fruit that provides a great amount of healthy monounsaturated fat. This green crocodile skinned fruit is packed with fantastic nutrients – it boasts an impressive 20 vitamins and minerals, including vitamins C, E, K and B6. Avocados contain a lot of fat but don’t be scared off by this as it’s the healthy essential type of fat that will make your skin glow, increases the absorption of vitamins and minerals and gives your immune system a boost. Avocados are also high in magnesium, phosphorus, iron and potassium, containing even more potassium per gram than bananas. Potassium has many functions. For example, it controls the balance of fluids in your body but it also corrects the functioning of the heart muscle. Avocados can be enjoyed in many ways. Try a few slices on an oatcake with hummus as an afternoon snack or put them in your salads like the one below. One whole avocado is just 1GL.
