As you know, we’re a broad church at tastecard dining club. We’re happy for our members to enjoy their restaurant meals however they want. But we have to confess to you that we’ve been making a foodie blunder. We must admit that we’ve been eating avocados the wrong way and we don’t want you to make the same mistake.
You may like an avocado as God intended, without any garnish or extra ingredients. You may prefer your avocado smashed onto a piece of sourdough bread. You might love a drizzle of olive oil, some salt and lemon juice mixed in with your avocado. But that may change now that you know there’s a right way to eat avocados.
According to Californian food guru Candice Kumai, we’ve been doing it all wrong. She eats three avocados a day, that makes her an avocado expert, and this is what she does. Candice cuts the avocado in half, takes out the stone, adds a drop of soy sauce and a touch of lemon and then eats it directly out of the skin.
Don’t Run Away from Avocados
Despite our avocado foodie errors, we’re still determined to keep filling up with avocados. And that’s for a good reason as they are tasty and healthy. Avocados are packed with healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and contain iron and potassium, making it a proper foodie superfood that wards off all sorts of ills. But only if you eat them the right way, of course!
Other Foods We’ve Been Eating the Wrong Way
OK, so now that we realise our avocado error and are determined to choose a better path, what other foods have we been eating incorrectly?
Cooking tomatoes is much better for you than eating them raw. Heating makes the antioxidant lycopene in tomatoes easier for our bodies to absorb. On the other hand, don’t boil most vegetables as some vitamins like Vitamin C will disappear into the cooking water. Instead, steaming, roasting or sautéing leave you with more nutritious vegetables. Carrots are an exception, although you should avoid cutting carrots before boiling to keep more nutrients intact.
As for delicious strawberries, take a step away from the cutting knife. Don’t cut your strawberries prior to eating them as their healthy ingredients begin to break down when exposed to light and oxygen. So, make sure you eat your strawberries whole. Make sure you tell your favourite tastecard restaurants all about our cooking tips!
