- Avocado Oil
The avocado is an unusual fruit. Unlike most fruits, it’s rich in healthy fats and is often used to produce oil. While avocado oil is not as well known as olive oil, it’s just as delicious. Additional benefits of avocado oil include a high content of vitamin E which makes it great for skin and hair, oleic acid that is anti-cancerous and helps with weight loss and chlorophyll which is a strong detoxifying agent.
Here are few ways to add avocado oil to your diet:
- Add a tablespoon to a smoothie.
- Drizzle over a salad
- Use it as a marinade.
- Include it when baking.
- Use it in homemade mayo.
- Drizzle it over vegetables before roasting.
- Top hummus off with it.
- Drizzle over cold soups, such as gazpacho.
3. Infused Honey
The fruit of bees is desired by all, and is equally sweet to kings and beggars. Infusing takes honey to another level with added flavours that pack a punch with the smallest of uses. But how to use infused honey?It can be enjoyed on fresh fruits, oatmeal, breads, desserts, smoothies, beverages, marinades and even drizzled over yummy homemade yogurt
