Australian Avocado’s Avotherapy: It’s All You’ve Avo Wanted

avocado, toast, recipe

It’s true, we Australians love our avocado. Last year alone we managed to consume around 3.5kg of avocado per person, which is good considering how healthy it is for you.

Avocados are nutritious, fibrous, jam-packed with vitamins, are healthy fats, can lower cholesterol, help absorb nutrients more easily, are rich in antioxidants, can help prevent cancer, and it just tastes amazing. Basically, if we were to compare fruits to superheroes, avocados are Superman.

In fact, they’re so good for you that Australian Avocados is set to dedicate a one-weekend-only event purely for this wonderful, green fruit…and it’s called Avotherapy.

What’s Avotherapy All About?

To put it simply, Avotherapy is a celebration of all things avocado, an event that recognises the health benefits that avocados have. For two days, people will be able to enjoy wellness workshops and activities including:

Avocardio

Avocardio will involve participating in a fitness class that incorporates the right amount of cardio with yoga – topped off with a lovely complementary avocado smoothie and assortment of snacks to refuel you.

Avocado Facials

Clearly, avocados aren’t just for eating. The oils in the avocado-based facials will leave your skin feeling softer and it’ll rid the the dead skin cells to give your face a radiant glow.

Good Mood Food

Hosted by the dietitian Lyndi Cohen, the Good Mood Food workshops cover the health benefits of avocados in terms of nutrition and the general feel-good factor that it has a food.

I’ve got a darn exciting announcement!!! 🥑🥑🥑 I’m working with @AustralianAvocados on an Australian-first avocado-inspired pop-up on the 12th-13th of October in Sydney. It’s called Avotherapy (how good?!) and you’ll get everything from Avocardio to avocado facials and. It’s a celebration of how nutrient-rich avocados leave you feeling good (AND can do a whole lot of other great stuff too like boost energy and heart health, enhance brain power, build bone, aid gut health and support healthy skin). 🕺 . I’ll be hosting workshops on the impact of food on mood, and how including foods like avocados can help you feel good. You might already know that avocados make you feel good and are delicious but I’ll also teach you things you didn’t know, too. . I’d love you to come along to the workshop (and avo-cuddle with me)! 🥑🤗 . Did I mention that entry is free? You just have to register to secure your spot. Click the link in my profile to register.

I went to the effort to make a smiley face out of avocados and it may be the most ‘influencer’ thing I’ve ever done but then I got to eat my props and it tasted creaaammy and now I’m feeling pretty chuffed and so excited for this event!! 🥑😏
