POWER FOOD: Avocados

So next in line for my power food series are AVOCADOS! 

Avocados are bursting full of essential nutrients that your body needs to help fight off eye disease thanks to it's powerful contents of carotenoids. 
Avocados are also a great way of making you less likely to snack thanks to their ability to keep you fuller for longer. Try adding a few slices of avocado to a salad, it will pack out the salad and add a nice creamy texture! 
If you suffer from dry skin, definitely think about introducing more of these power foods into your diet. They are a great source of something called biotin, which helps reduce the dry skin, brittle hair and nails, too! 
If you're looking for a quick fix to dry skin, mash up one avocado and apply to the face. Leave for 10-15 minutes and rinse off, you'll find your skin will be hydrated and radiant.  

And there we have it, another power food to get your teeth stuck in to!

Lots of love,
