The South African Avo Growers’ Association is giving away R5 000 cash to one lucky Eat Out reader who nominates their favourite avo dish at any restaurant in South Africa. (The winner will be chosen by lucky draw.)
Locally grown avocados are in season right now, so you should be sure to add an avo to any meal, any time of the day. Perfect your pizza, burger or sandwich by topping it off with thick slices of avo, or smash it up and add an avo as the crowning glory to your grilled steak or chicken breast. What is the point of a salad if it doesn’t have generous avo chunks resting atop fresh lettuce?
A study conducted in 2003 at the University of the North West shows that avos can be incorporated into effective weight loss plans because they make us feel fuller for longer. Avos are predominantly made up of ‘good’ monounsaturated fat, which is an essential part of a healthy diet, and nutrition experts recommend actually increasing our intake of these ‘good’ fats. A good excuse, isn’t it?
For more avo appreciation, download your free avocado recipe book courtesy of the South African Avocado Growers’ Association here. And for all things avo, like the association’s page on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter @iloveavos or Pinterest @Iloveavos.
The competition is open to readers in SA only and will run until Wednesday 24 August 2016. Terms and conditions apply.
