Oh how I LOVE avocados. They are so fantastic.

I of course love guacamole. I also make a fabulous salad with diced avocado, grape tomatoes, hearts of palm, red onion, garlic and lemon juice. This weekend I made a phenomenal black bean chili and topped it with diced avocado. Delish. I would have no problem just eating it plain though, that's for sure. What a delicious gift from nature the avocado is.

I sprinkle them with lemon juice. But, when they turn brown it doesn't affect the flavor, so I'll eat it if it goes a little brown-y. No way I can eat an entire avocado at one sitting and they are too yummy to pitch.

Add artichoke hearts and cucumber and that is one of my FAVORITE salads ever!

If they go brown I just scrape off the brown part and eat what's underneath. It's only the top layer that turns brown, once you scrape it off the rest is still delicious and green.

That sandwich sounds good enough to have sex with

Sprinkle with lemon juice as well as keep the core with it (don't throw it away).

I had avocado this morning Also, avocados are great in smoothies but I really want to be able to taste the avocado so I don't put in my smoothies.

I could EASILY eat a whole avocado in one sitting. No problemo. But I won't. Would like to, but I won't.

I can definitely see where that could work. Quite well, in fact.

I think that might be the difference between me and Glory. Cuz I can eat all of almost anything in one sitting ... sign .... better go exercise.

yum! I eat one or two a week and I eat a whole one at a time. I just plan the calories as the main part of that whole meal. I like 'em so much just as they are I really don't embellish them much but sometimes will mix with tomato or a little bit of cottage or feta cheese.

I split the avocado in half and leave the pit in the half I'm not going to eat right away. I usually eat a whole half. Then I put the other half, with the pit still attached, into a tightly sealed container. Some of it may turn a little brown, but I scrape that off and use what I want of the saved half, cutting around the pit, leaving it intact, unless I'm planning to eat the whole half. But sometimes I just slice off enough for a sandwich and then put the rest back into the fridge.

Yum, avocados! When I was small my mom would buy them, drizzle with lemon juice, and eat raw. I would beg for bites.

I use avocados in place of mayonnaise in sandwiches sometimes. My favorite sandwich at Red Robin restaurant is made with a croissant, turkey, bacon, avocado, tomato, and green leaf lettuce. Soooooo gooooood.

Ha, sorry, I should have said - there is no way I SHOULD eat a whole avocado in one sitting. Of course, I COULD - I can just rarely afford 400 calories for an avocado! If I budgeted for it, it would be okay.

I loooove avocadoes. In fact I just cut up 1/2 a one and mixed it with plain yogurt to put over a piece of fish. Yummy.
