Our whole food of the week is the amazing avocado.

Why should I eat it?

Avos are a super fruit containing a range of vital nutrients needed for a healthy body. Avocados are high in water (around 75%) however still pack a nutritional punch. They are full of healthy fat and fiber while naturally low in sugar and sodium. A few of the nutrients 1/4 avocado (around 50g) provides include;

  • 2g fibre
  • 60mg folate (30% of the recommended dietary intake (RDI) for folate)
  • 10mg Vitamin C (25% RDI for Vitamin C)
  • 1mg Vitamin E (10% of RDI for Vitamin E)
  • Naturally low in sodium just 1.5mg per 50g serve
  • Source of potassium. *

Kate's favourite way to do it....

  • On toast with sliced tomato, cracked pepper and Himalayan Pink sea salt
  • In a salad with blanched green beans, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, poppy seeds with a splash of fresh lemon juice and vinegar
  • As a replacement for butter or margarine, awesome with Vegemite!!
