Advocate for Avocados

May 30, 2024

Avocados are the new darlings of the eat healthy movement and are powerhouses rich in monounsaturated fat and contain many nutrients like potassium, vitamins E, B and folic acid.  Avocados are considered a fruit and when purchasing them, look for those that are dark green in color and feel heavy in your hand. Let them ripen at room temperature until they have a little give when pressed with your finger. Cut them in half lengthwise all away around, then twist to pull apart. Place a knife into the pit and twist it out. Use a large spoon to remove the avocadoes from the skin. Use them sliced in salads, spread on toast or try avocados stuffed with egg salad.
