First order of business today, BSI fun! I’ll post up my eats when I get home tonight.
Not only did Mark at Training Fuel choose my egg wrap as last week’s winning recipe (Thanks Mark!), he asked me to be this weeks host. So I got to thinking about what my secret ingredient would be. I kind of wanted to chose canned fish, but I knew that would exclude many vegetarians, and I figured that wasn’t really fair. I also thought about collard greens as they’re my favourite winter veggie, but they’re not so different from kale, a rather recent ingredient.
And then last night, while trying to fall asleep the feature ingredient suddenly came to me. But first I had to double check the list to make sure it hadn’t already been done, I couldn’t quite believe no one’s chosen it before.

Yep, my ingredient, definitely not on the list, SWEET! (or perhaps SAVOURY!) My choice is the mighty AVOCADO!
After perusing World’s Healthiest Foods I can provide these fast avocado facts:
- High in Vitamins K, B6, and C, potassium, folate, copper and fiber
- High in good-for-you monounsaturated fats, mostly oleic acid which may lower cholestrol
- May help protect against breast, prostate, and oral cancers
- Help you absorb fat soluble phytonutrients from other vegetables when eaten together.
So how do you like your avocados?
The prize will be a selection of fun products unique to Toronto/Canada that I think more people should try.
