Eat this, not that

Not only are avocados delicious, but they can be the perfect substitute for the unhealthy ingredients in your favourite meals.

  • Swop two tablespoons of regular mayonnaise with your tuna for 30 g of avocado and you more than halve the total fat content, while boosting the nutrient content of the meal.
  • Choose avocados for a cracker topping. A matchbox-size serving of Cheddar cheese contains 10 g of fat and about 186 mg of sodium, while the same amount of avocado only has 4,5 g fat and 2,1 mg sodium.
  • Ditch the sour cream for guacamole and cut the total saturated fat content from 19 g per 100 g to only 2 g.
