Health and wellbeing is a trend that’s here to stay with consumers saying NO to artificial and YES to mother nature’s larder. This month its all about the avocado a rather unique type of fruit.

So why do we all love this magical green fruit so much? Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fat (which can improve cholesterol levels, decrease risk of heart disease, and benefit brain activity), vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and vitamin B6 (which promotes healthy skin and serves as a back-up fuel). Their creamy texture compliments various dishes from salads to smoothies.
