Since I discovered avocados a few years ago, I could just eat them every day, although usually that’s more like every week or a couple of times a week. And whenever I do eat them I remember about the health benefits they bring, which makes me enjoy them even more.


And I think the guacamole sauce will convince even those not so keen on this fruit. This spicy salsa from Mexico is perfect with fresh vegetables, crisps (try those home-made oven-baked as a healthier option), pitta breads and more. Get creative!
