    M&S to sell ready-sliced avocado in £1.50 pots so customers can cut out 'messy' preparation at home

    The avocado pot – an alternative to the lunchtime sandwich – has arrived in the high street.
    The pots of prepared and sliced avocado sold by Marks & Spencer are part of a wider trend towards low-carb lunches.
    Pots of ready boiled eggs and spinach, smoked salmon and eggs, or diced avocado, eggs and spinach have proved popular at chains like Pret a Manger

    I think this will be welcomed by many ... and as we know "Avocados are packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, vitamin K, folate and antioxidants and contain more potassium per gram than bananas.
    They are high in omega 3 fatty acids, which can help to lower cholesterol and improve heart health, and can be good for weight loss as they release slow burning energy, reducing hunger. "

    Although banana's do have quite a high potassium level, they are not on our food plans because they cause too high a blood sugar spike, but avocado's of course are just brilliant.

    All the best Jan
