Avocado - Superfood

An unripe avocado will have none of the delicious creaminess of a ripe one. When shopping for avocados, select fruit that is unblemished, without cracks or dark sunken spots. A ripe avocado will yield slightly to the touch when pressed, and this slight softness indicates it's ready to eat. It's often difficult to find a ripe avocado in the store, but it will ripen at home in a few days in a paper bag or on the kitchen counter. Plan in advance so you'll have ripe avocados when you need them. Do not refrigerate avocados.

Guacamole is a favorite use for avocado and I've included a great "guac" recipe. There are many variations on this basic recipe, the simplest probably being mashing a ripe avocado with a roughly equal amount of prepared salsa.

My favorite ways to eat avocados are:

• Spread on toasted whole-grain bread and topped with salsa
• As a garnish for turkey tacos

• Diced into any green leafy salad

If you're counting calories, that's no reason to exclude avocados from your diet, just use them judiciously. For example:

• Spread a bit of mashed avocado on a sandwich in place of mayo.

• Chop and sprinkle avocado on top of a bean soup.

• Add to tofu and spices and blend to make a delicious, creamy dressing
