Are Fruity Desserts A Healthier Choice? Nutritionists Tell All

Dessert: To eat it, or not to eat it? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler to eat fruit-based desserts because they’re the healthier choice seems dubious. And yet, when it comes to what we eat, we restrict our diets with uninformed nutritional judgments all the time.

The Avocado Toast Trend Has Hit Colombia, And It’s Baffling Locals

Colombia is the third-largest producer of avocados in the world ― yet if you present a local with avocado toast, her reaction will likely be confusion. Avocados are typically part of an everyday diet in Colombia, but until recently, they haven’t dominated the cuisine as they have in the hipster cafes of the United States. Colombia produces Hass avocados to export to foreign markets ― and increasingly so, with production rising by more than 150 percent from 2010 to 2015 ― but hasn’t seen much of an avocado consumption trend.
