In line with National Nutrition Month, SumoSam introduces its wide array of delectable and nutritious avocado dishes prepared in various ways for the whole family to enjoy. Avocado is known to have many benefits, providing nearly 20 essential nutrients including fiber, potassium, B-Vitamins and folic acid and acting as a nutrient booster. It is the best fruit source for Vitamin E, protects against many diseases and helps maintain overall health.
There is no better day than today to begin eating healthy with a balanced variety of food and flavors. For starters, try SumoSam’s California Maki with Avocado Salad. California Maki is a popular dish that embodies Japanese- Western fusion and the salad interpretation features the same medley of cucumber, crab and avocado but tossed on a bed of fresh greens and topped with nori, the edible seaweed used to wrap sushi and tobiko or fish roe.
A choice selection of sushi rolls using avocado in four interesting twists are also available to satisfy the palate. Delight in the classic California Maki with Avocado, the Tempura Avocado Roll, Smoked Salmon and Avocado Roll and the Caterpillar Roll, in itself a visual treat. Apart from the avocado perfectly complementing and neutralizing the flavors of the other ingredients, these hearty portions are sure to be high in beta-sitosterol, a compound found in avocado that has been shown to lower cholesterol levels.
Quench your thirst with a refreshing avocado shake or cap off the meal with a delicious serving of Avocado Ice Cream artistically served on the fruit’s shell, an award winning dessert from SumoSam’s Battle of the Chefs 2 Champions Antonio Jarabejo Jr. and Joseph Paglingayen. Indulge in this sweet creation sans the guilt since this instead gives you a dose of folate. In fact, one cup of this tropical fruit yields 23% of the recommended daily value of folate, which has been shown to relatively lower incidences of heart disease.
