Guacamole, little guacamole ...
What about the avocados besides we love them? Like really, as starter, as main lunch, as snack, as dessert, in sushi, bagels! Miaaaam ... It's so good! It would almost fall to the ground!
But even if you think that you know everything about the avocado, there are some things you did not know before (just like we do). So why not share all these beautiful discoveries that will make you fall in love (once again) with the avocados?
Prepare yourself then avocado lovers, here are all the little tips, recipes and tips that will allow you to better know your darling avocado!
1) BANANAS AND APPLES HELP TO GROW AVOCADOS...
You went to the supermarket when you got home from work and finally, once at home, you realize that your avocado is not ready to be eaten! Gosh ! But we have THE advice that will change your life (promised, promised). Put your avocado in a paper bag with a banana or an apple. The gases produced by the fruits will help your avocado to ripen faster. It's science! ;)
2) ... OR ALUMINUM
If you do not have bananas or apples at home (or you forgot to take them to the supermarket again), but you have a piece of aluminum, you're saved! All you need to do is wrap your avocado in foil and bake it at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes (no more, otherwise you'll be cooking guacamole ...)
3) THE AVOCADO STEM WILL TELL YOU A LOT OF THINGS!
Imagine, you're touching your avocado, you feel it but impossible to know if your avocado is mature or not. And we agree, there are no need to spoil an avocado! It would be a real sacrilege. So to avoid the slaughter, remove the avocado stem and look at the color. If it is green or yellow, your lawyer is mature, if on the contrary it has become brown, a tip, give up!
4) WASH YOUR AVOCADO BEFORE EATING IT!
Yes, it may seem weird to wash a avocado but like any other fruit or vegetable you eat, it must be cleaned. If you do not, you could put bacteria in the fruit when cutting and therefore be subject to food poisoning. So be careful!
5) CUT HORIZONTALLY!
REVELATION! There are no other words. Until then, you probably thought that cutting your avocado vertically was the best solution. Well you are wrong, better cut your avocado horizontally so that you can then press it down slightly to use neither knife nor spoon.
6) AVOID YOUR AVOCADOS BRUNNING WITH A LEMON OR ONION!
This afternoon, you want a little avocado. But you prefer to keep the other half for tonight after your hot bath. No worries, just sprinkle your avocado with a few drops of lemon juice or store it near a cut onion. The citric acid contained in the lemon is a strong antioxidant while the gases released by the cut onion prevent oxidation. That's it!

Much less fat, avocados are a great substitute for butter or oil. In pasta, cakes, avocado will delight your taste buds and vegans who come to eat at home! (We just expect ...).
8) YOU CAN TRANSFORM IT IN ROSE!
Nothing better to impress your guests. And besides, it's really easy to achieve. It's all about having a good ripe avocado and a knife. The result is simply magical. We let you confirm with this tutorial!
9) FOR A HEALTHIER MAYONNAISE, THE AVOCADO IS THE SOLUTION!
Whether you hate mayonnaise or just want to adopt a healthier lifestyle, the avocado will save your life again! Instead of the old mayonnaise, a good little mashed avocado in your salad complement will give you the creaminess you were looking for but ... without the calories!
10) FIGHT SUGAR WITH YOUR AVOCADO!
Because you are inseparable, your avocado will not let you go in any situation. If you are looking to reduce your sugar intake, it is the best way! To start the day, a smoothies are cool but sometimes they are much too sweet. In this case, replace your bananas or other by a avocado. You will have the same nutrients, a similar consistency but once again, less sugar.
