Eating just one or two avocados a week gives you all the benefit of healthy monounsaturated fats, Vitamin B6 and loads of folate. Check with your local grocer to find out when this spreadable fruit is in season in your area.
TIPS: On toast with salt and pepper, or a slice of cheese if you’re that way inclined.
6. DARK CHOCOLATE
According to recent research, chocolate contains more antioxidants, gram-for-gram, than most fruit juices – great news for chocoholics! On top of protecting the body from diseases and helping to prevent heart conditions, dark chocolate is a natural mood-booster.
TIPS: Eat this healthy food in moderation – just one or two squares per day is enough to reap the benefits.
