Spotlight: Avocados

A is for Avocados

🥑Avocados are known to be full of healthy fats, in particular, oleic acid — a monounsaturated fatty acid which is known to reduce inflammation.

🥑 A 100g serving contains 26% of your daily recommended amount of vitamin K, a vitamin needed to help blood clotting and is also the thought to be needed to build strong bones.

🥑 They contain more potassium than bananas. Potassium is a macro mineral, it plays a key part in energy production and helps maintain a healthy heart rhythm by helping transmit electrical signals from the brain. Low levels of potassium can cause fatigue and constipation.

🥑 Avocados are packed full of fibre (100g gives you 27% of your daily recommended amount). Fibre passes through the the body undigested and helps reduce blood cholesterol, toxin excretion, aids digestion and helps keep you fuller for longer.
