PARTNER CONTENT: June is World Avocado Month
The World Avocado Association (WAO), of which South Africa is a member, will be dedicating the month of June to the awesome avocado. Avocados will be celebrated all over the world so make sure you do your bit and add an avo too!
As South Africans we definitely don’t need any excuse to add an avo to our meals and the good news is that avocados, not surprisingly, are at the forefront of the hottest food trends predicted for 2019.
The plant revolution wave that’s sweeping the world puts avos right up there, with the fruit dominating countless meat-free dishes. Avos are also turning heads in the wellness space. The popularity of keto, paleo, grain-free and ‘pegan’ diets, as well as ‘neurotrition’, have put ‘good fats’ back on the menu.
With avos boasting high amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, linked to good HDL cholesterol, and being naturally cholesterol free, they tick all the right boxes when it comes to these dietary and lifestyle choices.
One of the biggest food trends this year is hassle-free snacks and healthy meal replacements that provide satiety and nutrition for time-strapped consumers. Eaten straight out the skin, avos offer a quick, easy and fully mobile meal option!
