An avocado is a superfood, full of healthy fats, high in potassium, and incredibly versatile in its uses.
tips and tricks about various fruits. Since I was recently introduced to avocados, I thought I would add a post about them!
I haven't always been a fan of avocados, but lately I have been purchasing them more often and incorporating them into our diet. In fact, avocados were recommended as a first food for Summer. Part of the reason for my post today is because I'll be talking about avocados in an upcoming Homemade Baby Food post and this will make a good reference! Also, I have a delicious recipe coming up that uses avocado!
When choosing an avocado, you'll want to choose a fruit that is soft when pressed. Side note here: did you know avocados are actually fruit? I always thought they were vegetables! The flesh of an avocado turns brown when exposed to air (like bananas) and that can be prevented by serving it immediately or sprinkling it with lemon juice. Avocados are typically served raw.
Remember that avocados brown quickly, so you'll want to use the avocado shortly after you cut it.
