I know that are high in PUFA. but they are tasty, and good source of a few different things.

also a lot easier to peel than a coconut xD.

Eating them frequently KILLS my appetite. Very satisfying.

You can freeze avocado and it won't go brown. I freeze it mashed up and add to smoothies.

They're really good. I don't eat them all the time, and not a lot at once, but sometimes for a snack I'll have a slice of avocado and roll 2 thin slices or 1 thick slice of some roasted turkey breast around it. I also eat them as part of a sushi roll when I end up going out for sushi, which is not infrequently.

At least you don't burn your avocados in the oven. v/r

You can also cover the exposed flesh with saran wrap to slow oxidation, though it will eventually brown.

That doesn't really work. It only keeps the part the pit is touching from oxidizing. Rubbing with lemon juice does work best, but changes the flavor of the avocado.

If you're only going to eat one half, leave the seed in the other half. It will keep it from oxidizing. This also works with guacamole, too.

Tips for avocados: 1. Cut only what you will eat at that meal. 2. If they are oxidizing, you aren't eating them fast enough. 3. Mash avocado with hard-boiled egg yolks and make deviled eggs. 4. Avocado pretty much goes with anything on a plate!

Yep - avocados are *way* higher in monounsaturated fat than poly.

Monounsaturated fat, potassium, fiber, and deliciousness- eat up!

They are delicious and I eat them weekly.

Other than that?

Dunno. Lots of things have PUFA. Isn't worth the stress over some polyunsats in your day, as long as you are eating enough sat fat as well and it isn't the bulk of your diet.

They're one of my favorite breakfast foods, actually... One avocado, halved, drizzled with some fresh lime juice and sprinkled with grey sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Yummy!

I like them but they are pretty expensive for a fruit. Also they tend to go bad fast unless treated with some lemon juice.

Avocados are way higher in monounsaturated fat than poly. Don't worry. They're a great source of good fat and fiber.
