For the Love of Avocado


I swear I could eat avocados for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Ever since I discovered all the goodness this creamy fruit has to offer, I never leave the fruit market without one or two in my basket.

Touted as one of the healthiest foods on earth, avocados are packed with essential nutrients including vitamin A, B, C, E & K, iron, magnesium and potassium. The delicious fruit has amazing anti-inflammatory properties thanks to healthy fats like oleic acid which increases the absorption of nutrients.

Research shows that avocados lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease and help stabilize blood sugar.

Rich in fibre, avocados help you maintain a healthy digestive system.

For a snack, I’ll cut into a ripe avocado, sprinkle it with salt and chili flakes and a squirt of lemon. On weekend mornings, I mash avocado, spread it on toast and top with a fried egg, tomato and havarti cheese. Eggs and avocado are a match made in heaven!

Recently, I scoured the web for incredibly delicious recipes to feed my avocado obsession.
