It’s that time of year when we can all get excited about avocados again. To celebrate we have this created this moreish avocado dip that will make an excellent addition to your next grazing board. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, which are great for normal hormone balance, improve skin barrier function and reduce inflammation. One large avocado contains over 10% of your recommended daily intake for iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, thiamin and riboflavin, over 35% of vitamins C, niacin, B6 and E, over 50% of vitamin K and 89% of folate - making it a source of almost every vitamin. Vitamin E is a particularly skin-friendly vitamin, as it reduces inflammation and acts as an antioxidant.
Nutritional Savoury Yeast Flakes have also been included in this recipe to up the level of nutrients including all of your B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc and potassium, and they also add a yummy savoury taste. Zinc is another skin loving mineral as it supports healing. Pepitas add a bit of crunch, as well as plenty of extra magnesium and iron, and hemp seeds are a complete protein source and high in iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.
