    How to pick the best avocados

    How can you tell if the avocado in your hand is ripe when you’re at the grocery store?

    There are a couple of ways to do this without guessing.

    Stem: If the stem of the avocado comes off easily, that is a good indication that it’s ripe.

    Now, check the color under the stem. This will tell you whether it’s perfectly ripe or too ripe to eat. If the color under the stem is green, it’s perfect, and if it’s brown, it’s too ripe.

    Color: Unripe avocados are picked off trees when they are bright green. You can tell when they are ready to eat right after they lose any green speckles and are entirely brown and slightly soft under your fingertips.

    If they are black or you notice any really soft spots, they are overripe and will likely have black spots on the inside. This is an excellent way to know if an avocado is bad.

    Storage information

    Storing avocados:

    Store avocados separately from the bread. Try to only cut open as many avocados as you’re going to use right away. When they’re exposed to air, they turn brown quickly.

    You can keep whole, uncut avocados in a cool, dry place until they’re ripe.

    If you have cut or mashed avocado, cover it with plastic wrap in an airtight container and place it in the fridge for up to three days.

    Add a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to help prevent the avocado from turning brown as well.


    Storing keto bread:

    If you plan on using your bread within a week, you can keep it on the counter at room temperature as long as it is shelf stable. Some keto breads (especially the gluten-free, dairy free keto breads) don’t contain preservatives and can only be stored at room temperature for a few days before they start to mold.

    Keep the loaf in the refrigerator if you will eat it within two weeks.

    1. I have been missing avocado toast since starting keto. I have now been following this WOE for almost 2 years. This recipe is a hit mostly because it fills a gap by eating Keto.
