31 WAYS TO EAT AVOCADO

WORDS : ELAINE FORMBY, Brown Paper Intern and Nutrition / Dietetics Student

We all know that avo is the secret hero to all happiness in the kitchen but did you know just how many ways you can eat it beyond the ole faithful avo on toast? And do you remember all the great reasons avo is just such a wonderful team player in health? Tune in for some avo lovin…

WE LOVE THE NUTRITION IN AVOCADO BECAUSE…

Avocado is a source of monounsaturated fat: 

  • Reduces the bad cholesterol levels in your blood
  • Provides nutrients to help and maintain your bodies cells
  • Aids in weight loss as a healthier alternative to margarine or mayonnaise

Avos are a great source of antioxidants: 

  • Containining natural antioxidants including vitamin E
  • Anti-inflammatory compounds helping to protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes
  • Contains vitamin C to support collagen production to maintain skin elasticity

They’re rich in protein and fibre:

  • To keep our digestive systems healthy whilst also keeping us fuller for longer
  • Contains fibre to help absorb the high amounts of protein and assists fat burning and building lean muscle mass

But we wouldn’t leave you hanging on just that, we reached out to our Instagram community to find out their favourite ways to eat avocado and of course added a few of our own!
