An Avocado A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!

The Avocado is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet! If your not a fan of the texture -dont worry! I have an awesome smoothie recipe at the bottom of the page for you!

The Avocado also known as ‘Alligator Pear’ (a name I love!) contains a huge amount of vitamins K,E,C,B and a high level of Potassium – much more then bananas!

100grams of Potassium contains 14% of our recommended daily amount. Potassium reduces our blood pressure and helps us maintain a healthy heart.

Avocados are super high in fibre and low carb!
When looking to see results in our physique and health, having Avocado reduces blood sugar spikes, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and aiding fat loss! Soluble fibre found in Avocados, supplies friendly bacteria to our bodies keeping us in a healthy state. 100g of Avocado provides 27% of our RDA of fibre!

This fruit helps you absorb vitamins and minerals into your body!
Nutrients such as Vitamin K, D, E and A need natural fats in order to be fully absorbed by the body. Natural fats like Avocado will increase the amount of anti-oxidants you take in-keeping you in a peak state to change your body!

Avocados contain a large amount of Lipids – a fatty acid and building block for healthy cells. Lipids restore cells to a healthy state and absorb beta-carotenes found in plant foods that help fight off certain cancers and heart disease.

Make sure you add avocados to smoothies, salads and anything else to reap the benefits!
