Avocado, an “happiness” superfood?

Did you know that the avocado is a “happiness” superfood? This unctuous and delicate fruit is full of compounds that are beneficial for the balance of the brain: essential fatty acids, B group vitamins, potassium, calcium, magnesium, tryptophan and tyrosine. These last two are amino acids that are transformed by the body into serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline, neurotransmitters that act directly on our mood and our zest for life.

Preparation:

  • Plain, with a drizzle of lemon and a hint of Dijon mustard;
  • In a salad;
  • In smoothies and gazpachos;
  • In spring rolls and sushi.
