Avocados need more love. Sure they are a little heavy on the bottom… but I have never been one to pass judgment. Avocados are a staple in my kitchen. I usually buy a green avocado and stick him (or her) next to my bananas to ripen. By the time I finish the ripe one I have in the fridge, the new one is ready for me to use, eat and enjoy.
Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
Avocado: I adore you. Plain and simple. Well, maybe with a pinch of salt and pepper.
