To preserve the area with the greatest concentration of antioxidants, you basically want to peel the avocado with your hands, as you would a banana:

1. First, cut the avocado length-wise, around the seed

2. Holding each half, twist them in the opposite directions to separate them from the seed

3. Remove the seed

4. Cut each half, lengthwise

5. Next, using your thumb and index finger, simply peel the skin off each piece

How to Get More Avocado into Your Diet

While avocado is commonly eaten raw, on salad or alone, with nothing but a dash of Himalayan salt and some ground pepper, for example, there are many other ways to include avocado in your diet. For example, you can use avocado in the following ways:

• Use as a fat replacement in baking. Simply replace the fat called for (such as oil, butter or shortening) with an equal amount of avocado

• Use as a first food for babies, in lieu of processed baby food.
