We all love South Asian cuisine, but what about other Asian palates? March is Nutrition Month in Canada. This year, for the first time, Avocados From Mexico has taken the pledge to help Canadians eat better. Who doesn’t love the avocado?
With superfood properties like potassium, fibre and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, incorporating avocados into your daily diet is a great way to build healthy habits and treat your body right – something the Dieticians of Canada, Nutrition Month’s organizers, are very passionate about.
The main goal of the campaign is to provide information and guidance to Canadians, making it a little easier for them to choose, eat and enjoy healthy meals.
We’re exploring global asian eats with this great recipe for a healthy addition to your meals during Nutrition Month!
