All you avo wanted!
Smash ’em, fry ’em, slice ’em, dice ’em … no matter how you eat ’em, avocados are a favorite for good reasons! Aside from being extra creamy and delicious, avocados are packed with good-for-you nutrients too!
- Contains more potassium than a banana
- More fiber in a single serving than any other fruit (Yes, it’s a fruit!)
- High in antioxidants and vitamins C, E and K
- May support healthy cholesterol levels due to its heart-healthy fat content
How to pick ’em:
Judging by the color alone won’t be much help here … you gotta feel them out! Avocados are ready to eat when they yield to slight pressure, so go ahead and give them a gentle squeeze to ensure they’re good to go! When squeezed, they shouldn’t be too firm or too soft … they should be just right!
Be sure to pick avocados with their tiny wooden knot still attached to the top, as this will ensure that the avocado hasn’t oxidized on the inside yet.
