Default Avocado Help!

I have been using a variety of mayo's on my sandwiches. I am wanting to try something a little healthier. I really like mashed up avocado in place of mayo. I only want to use a small amount because of the calories. Any recommendations for keeping an avocado "fresh"? Is there a way to mash the avocado, and store it in a bowl and it stay fresh for my work week lunch?

I am aware of little packets of Whooly Guacamole. Great idea, but I hate onions. They also have the Avo Pulp, but it's not available in my area.

So basically is there a way to make my own Avo Pulp to use and keep it fresh? TIA!

You can actually keep a whole bowl of mashed avocado or guacamole from turning dark or spoiling by just burying the pit in it until time to eat. Or, press a piece of plastic wrap over the surface, smooth out any air bubbles, and voila' - no problem. To keep sliced or cubed avocado from discoloring, sprinkle with some lemon or lime juice. Lemon or lime juice also seems to help keep avocado mash fresh also.

Gelene Hi thanks for responding. I had heard about putting the pit in with the avocado but I didn't think it was true. I am going to have to try it. Thanks, again. I think avocado will be healthier than mayo.
