The avocado is a food without rival among the fruits, the veritable fruit of paradise. – David Fairchild
Did you know the avocado is a fruit? This deliciously creamy treat is the only fruit that provides an abundant amount of healthy monosaturated fatty acids, and contains vitamin K, C, B, E, fiber, potassium and folate too. Cut through the thick skin, and enjoy the soft creamy meat that surrounds the pit. The high fat concentration makes it incredibly filling, and great for brain health, eye health, and promotes soft, smooth skin. Enjoying an avocado in your salad or smoothie is known to help the body absorb the other nutrients from plant foods even better, and dramatically increase the amount of antioxidants you take in.
