March is Nutrition Month in Canada. This year, for the first time, Avocados From Mexico has taken the pledge to help Canadians eat better, as an official sponsor of the campaign.
We love the superfood properties like potassium, fibre and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, that avocados incorporate into your daily diet. For everyone, including South Asians mixing it up at the table is always a great idea as long as you can balance taste with nutrition in an easy way!
Here’s one of our fave avolicious recipes and a sneak peek at some from the campaign.
½ to 1 red onion, sliced into thin rings
½ tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
½ cup apple cider vinegar or rice vinegar
½ cup water
½ tsp crushed hot pepper flakes

Lime quarters and hot sauce, to serve
