As you may probably know, avocado is one of the healthiest food. Some benefits of avocado are: rich in vitamins and minerals, contains vitamins B, C, E, K and phosphorus, magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium and zinc and helps to lose weight as it is incredibily nutritious. Since it has heart-friendly healthy fats, it is very useful in lowering cholesterol and also helps strengthen immunity. There are more other benefits but these are the ones that I am interested in the most. Because of these benefits, I’ve always wanted to eat avocados, but I did not like its taste at all and I didn’t eat until the pandemic began. 🙁 Since I started making pastries and eating them all the time during quarantine, I had to stop at some point. Then I thought I may try to eat avocados with a few additional ingredients and now I no longer eat my breakfasts without avocados. I wanted to share how I eat avocado to give an idea for those who are looking for some tasty avocado recipes. So here are my avocado toast recipes for every taste.
How to Ripen Avocados Perfectly? How to store avocados?
When buying avocados, I do not mind if they are ripe anymore.Actually I prefer to buy it fresh if possible, because when I buy a ripe avocado, sometimes I find out that the inside of is a bit dark when I get home and it is actually very easy to ripen the avocado. I just put the avocados in a brown paper bag with apples. Depending on the freshness of the avocado, the avocado ripens perfectly 1 or 2 days.
Too much avocado can be harmful because of the oils it contains, so consuming 1/2 avocados a day would be ideal. I eat half an avocado on 2 slices of rye bread at each breakfast, so I use a quarter avocado on each slice. I put the remaining half of the avocado without removing the core in a storage container and squeeze a lemon on it so it doesn’t get darken.
