Avocados

Most people believe the avocado to be a vegetable but in reality it belongs to the fruit family! 

During the last few years, it has become one of our favorite ingredients in salads and a wide variety of dishes! You can find avocados in supermarkets all year round but they are at their best from December up until March. 

The avocado tree is a well known indigenous tree and the fruit is sometimes also called a butter pear or an alligator pear. It was first found in the tropical regions of Mexico where the natives would cultivate it and was an important ingredient in their diet.

The avocado has a buttery taste and should not be eaten right after harvest but some time after it has become ripe.

Avocados are now grown in many parts of the world, even in certain areas in Crete, in Greece.

But what is it that makes avocados so beneficial?

They contain what are known as healthy fats! Monosaturated fats are considered healthy fats that lower the levels of cholesterol in the blood. A medium avocado contains much more protein than any other fruit.

Avocado recipes are growing daily since it is considered a superfood and more and more people are adding it to their daily diet!
