Avocados are fruit, not a vegetable. They have the highest protein content of any fruit. They also contain high level of potassium. Adequate intake of potassium can help to guard against circulatory diseases, like blood pressure, heart disease or stroke. It is an important nutrient for healthy eyes.
A ripe, ready to eat avocado is slightly soft but should have no dark sunken spots or cracks. If you used a half portion of ripe avocado, it is better
to store the remaining in the refrigerator. Store in a plastic bag, wrap with a plastic wrap, or place on a plate cover with plastic wrap.
It has Omega 3 in it. So my hubby asked me to make all time. Homemade guacamole is simple to make and taste so much better than the store bought. It is very healthy and tasty recipe.

Fresh lime juice - 1 -2 Tbsp
