Avocados have grown in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. This fruit is full of nutrients and “good” fat that can nourish and benefit the body in many ways.

Benefits of Avocado

How to Pick Avocados

Look for dark green/purple avocados if you want to eat one right away. Place the avocado in the palm of your hand and squeeze from the palm, not at the fingertips, which can damage the fruit. If it feels slightly firm, then it’s ready to eat. If you don’t plan on eating it for a few days, pick the more green, very firm avocados and allow them to ripen.
