Pasternak is no stranger to the task of balancing nutrition and fitness. He works with a star-studded array of celebrities who are looking for motivation to help them stay in shape and make better eating choices.
"The key is to not only enjoy foods that taste great, but help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle without the hassle," said Pasternak. "Avocados are a nutrient-dense, versatile fruit that can be eaten alone or used in a variety of recipes- from soups to salads to smoothies - all of which can fit into a sensible eating plan."
Pasternak will work with HAB in 2014 to motivate consumers through a variety of activities, including providing healthy eating tips for the New Year. He shares some snacking tips to keep you full longer between meals and discusses naturally good fats.
About the Hass Avocado Board
The Hass Avocado Board (HAB) was established in 2002 to promote the consumption of Hass Avocados in the United States. A 12-member board representing domestic producers and importers of Hass Avocados directs HAB's promotion, research and information programs under supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture.
In 2010, HAB established a Nutrition Research program to increase awareness and improve understanding of the unique benefits of avocados to human health and nutrition. Fresh Hass avocados are a delicious, cholesterol-free, whole food source of naturally good fats. The Nutrition Research program is an integral part of Love One Today, HAB's multi-year, science-based food and wellness education program. Love One Today encourages Americans to include fresh Hass avocados in everyday healthy eating plans to increase fruit and vegetable intake.
