When it comes to green foods they are not viewed as the yummiest in the realm of appetizing colors. They tend to be more of the side dishes then the ones that kids immediately scream ‘No!’ at. Well here to step up the game is the AVOCADO!
The avocado not only does wonders inside the body but it does wonders outside as well. Here are a few ways that many of us wouldn’t ever realize:
Now I know you all wanna know the calories contained so you understand the correct balance when eating them. It is said that a medium one is a little over 250 calories. Now just adding a lil spoon here and there with your salad or meat is enough to reap the benefits and still control your weight.
When picking an avocado you need to hold it in your hand and gently squeeze without applying your fingertips, because it can cause bruising. If the avocado gives slightly to the gentle pressure, then you know it’s ripe and ready to be eaten. If it doesn’t give slightly and is still firm then it still needs a couple of days before it’s ready. If it is mushy and very easy to squeeze then it’s overripe and you’ll want to put that one right back down! So now it’s time to go to the grocery store and pick up one of these amazing little green gems! Thanks for listening and enjoy your avocado!!
