A Surprising Way to Use Avocados!

Good morning and happy Monday!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE avocados and I have them nearly every day. In addition to guacamole, which I make whenever I have fish tacos, I use them in my salads, as a side with my breakfast omelet or with a sprinkle of Himalaya salt as a snack.

Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats which have been shown to improve cardiac health, are high in minerals, specifically Potassium and antioxidants such as glutathione. They are a delicious way to get heart healthy nutrients in your diet.

But most of the nutrients in the avocado are contained in a part of the fruit that you are likely throwing in the garbage! In today’s video, I am going to share with you what part that is and how you can include it in your diet to benefit from it’s incredibly dense nutritional profile.

I’ll be curious to hear your reaction and thoughts once you watch the video. I’ll also want to know if you’ve tried this part of the avocado before and how you include it in your diet.

I hope you are off to a happy week and are enjoying the summer!

    Greetings Barbara,
    Thank you for sharing all your wonderful knowledge with us.

    It’s been a while, but happy to have seen your video on avocados. Okay, so right after watching your video, I got a seed and cut into it. I boiled water and made tea. I added Citrus honey, and it was delicious. I was able to reboil 2 and 3 times with a great color from the seed, still. I then made ice tea. With the remaining pieces cuts, I stored them in the frig for my smoothie this morning. No bitter taste whatsoever.
    Quick question, after boiling the seed for hot tea, the seed softens, would it be wise to add those to a smoothie? The seeds seem to be quite potent, after several boilings, color was still strong! Any comment has to how many times they can be reused?

      How fantastic Josie! So glad you got so much out of it. I would say that sure, use it in a smoothie after boiling it for tea.. if nothing else it is a nice source of fiber~
      Hope all is well!

    What??!!! I’m going home and experimenting with this ASAP! I just worry that the roundness of the pit will make it hard to chop….
