When in doubt "Have-acado!" This Mexican fruit is a must add to your diet & we will tell you why. Avocados are loaded with fiber & provide nearly half the daily recommended value of fiber. The high fiber content makes you feel full for longer, aids in the formation of stools & also helps in weight loss. The vitamins, minerals, healthy fats found in avocados contribute directly towards heart health. Moreover, they contain monosaturated fat which helps in lowering cholesterol & also aids in brain development. Avocados are packed with bioactive compounds including carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin E, and phenolic compounds. These compounds are known to have antioxidant, neuroprotective & cardioprotective properties.
Place the semi-ripe Avocados in a cool & dark place for a few days so that they can ripen & are ready to eat. A ready-to-eat avocado should be slightly soft when you press it from outside.
To preserve semi-ripe Avocados, place them in an air-tight container or tightly covered clear plastic wrap & refrigerate. In case the fruit has been sliced, place it in flesh-down in a container filled with water & refrigerate.
