And I’ll Bet The Sweeps On That!

You may try to avoid eating avocados because they are high in fat but think again. These wrinkly green fruit are jammed full of nutrition. Here are 3 reasons you should eat them.

1. Avocados contain monounsaturated fats which allow your body to absorb fat soluble nutrients including vitamin A, D, E & K along with caretenoids such as luetin, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene – all potent anti-oxidants!

2. Avocados can help keep you full! Firstly because half an avocado contains around 4 grams of dietary fiber, slowing down the breakdown of carbohydrates. Also the oleic acid found in avocados has been shown to activate the fullness centre of the brain.

3. Avocados contain B vitamins which help our bodies deal with stress – something we all could use more of!
