The American Chemical Society came out with this video explaining how to get the most nutrients from your avocado experience.
Did you know avocados have a wealth of health benefits? Inside this fruit (IT’S A FRUIT, Y’ALL!) is lots of fiber and double the potassium of a banana.
These little dudes also have tons of vitamin B6, E, monounsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, and plenty of good fat.
Most importantly, though, avocados contain 11 kinds of carotenoids, which fight certain kinds of cancer and heart disease! These important compounds can be found in the dark green flesh closest to the skin.
For this reason, you should be peeling the skin off the avocado rather than scooping out the meat to get maximum health benefits!
That rougher portion near the skin is the stuff you want!
