Avocados: The Perfect Balance of Flavour and Nutrition!

Avocado is a creamy fruit packed with healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. It is a high-fibre and low-carbohydrate food that helps you feel full for longer. But its high-fat content may cause some people hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar). To control sugar levels, you can pair avocados with other low-glycemic index foods like whole grains or non-starchy vegetables. No matter how you choose to enjoy your avocado, it’s important to practice portion control as it may lead to weight gain if consumed in excess.

Avocado-licious: Managing your glucose levels while enjoying this superfood
• Try making guacamole, an avocado-based dip that’s easy to make. You can spread it on breads that are seed-based or made of alternative flours like almond.
• Consider mashing it up and using it as a spread with pickled carrots or cucumbers.
• Try pairing it with a carbohydrate source such as wholegrain bread or brown rice to prevent spikes in your blood sugar levels.

Avocados are a great source of healthy fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, essential for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. The presence of fibre also helps manage blood sugar levels. Fibre helps slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, which prevents sugar spikes.
