AVOCADO


I LOVE to eat Avocados. At home, I'd halve them, take the seed out and scoop them out. With a large spoon, scoop the fleshy avocado and eat them with prawns that have just been cooked briefly in boiling water. Add a little thousand island if you like. It tastes heavenly.

Avocados are rich in vitamins like Folate, Vitamins A and C, Potassium and they are very rich in monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fats can be found in healthy foods like Olive Oil, Nuts and Salmon as well.

To speed up an avocado, simply put it in a little bag and it will ripen faster. Of course the best way is for it to get ripe off the tree itself. Pureed avocado with a few tablespoonful of lemon juice freeze well for a few months. Great for dips!

Add avocado to your diet. See it work wonders for a healthy you.
