How To Make This An “On-The-Go” Snack

Want to bring this avocado snack along with you to the office or to school? Here are my tips:

  1. don’t cut the avocado and bring a small knife to cut it at work…OR you can cut the avocado in half and store it in an avocado hugger or reusable beeswax wrap
  2. pour balsamic vinegar into a small container with a lid, already mixed with salt + pepper
  3. bring a spoon, crackers or other sides (as desired), and dig in 🙂

Avocado Nutrition Benefits

Avocados are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, which give them their signature smooth texture and mouthfeel!

Fats are super important for many processes in the body and they help your body absorb any fat-soluble nutrients present in the other ingredients in a meal.

Fats also digest slower, which means they’ll help you feel fuller and more satisfied for longer. This is especially important for a healthy snack, which is designed to keep you full between meals 🙂

Avocados are also an excellent source of dietary fibre, with one fruit providing about 40% of your daily fibre needs.

In terms of micronutrients, avocados are a good source of:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin B6
  • vitamin E
  • vitamin K
  • folate
  • magnesium
  • potassium
