I've been pretty lucky in that regard - all the red sauce on pizza I've ever eaten there has been actual pizza sauce. The mayo, though, I've been fooled several times - if it looks like it's extra cheese, it's not - it's a thick layer of cooked mayo...

Probably its that much that you can grate off a seed, mix with cheese and fat and put out on the street to kill mice.

I have no clue, and I do not care. I assume they would not do in Mexico the way I described if it would not work. So - the dose, whatever it is, seems to suffice.



But feel free to eat the seeds as well, if you want. As long as you do not hold me responsible for any unwanted consequences afterwards.

I was just figuring the math for fun.
I don't like avocados myself but may be a nice addition to my Mouse fighting skills!

Go back to my cheese post in this thread, click the link, and bite the bullet.

Trust me, you'll forget the shipping fee after the first taste.

Salmon is the Germans' most favourite fish dish. Mine, too. Followed by Makrela, and Herring in cream with Dill.

Reading about your first experiences with avocados was funny to me. I grew up with them as a very normal part of my life and with easy access to avocado tree orchards. I use them with tons of dishes, and I don't mind eating them plain either.



It reminded me of when I was quite young and tofu caught on (in my area anyway) and my dad brought home a block from the store. He told me it was a new thing showing up and supposed to be very healthy. We both took some bites of it raw and were far from impressed. Next he tried sauteing it, but we remained severely disappointed. Many years later, I met my eventual wife and she showed me a whole new life with tofu. The things she does with it, from bacony crumbles to breaded chickeny piccata just blow me away. We must go through two blocks a week sometimes.



Anyway, I've had avocado ice cream... which I admit sounds terrible. But somehow... SOMEHOW IT WAS AMAZING. They also make some kind of pudding with it that I have not tried, but I would not be shocked if that was good too. Maybe it's just because I'm from California and we put avocado on everything.

Hehe, I started 30 years ago with Tofu and the belief that it is healthy, and Avocado meant nothing to me until recently.



Today I know that Tofu and soy are quite unhealthy and I avoid them, but Avocado has become anindispensable ingredient in my kitchen.



It also freaks out the green crowd, which provides me with an additional feel well bonus.

Friends asked me about how I make Avocado creme. It seems many people who are new to Avocados, do not see what to do with them, I mean it does not taste well if tried pure or sliced in a pan, and many people, myself included, miss on first try that it should best be used not as a main dish, but as a culinaric "accessoire": a creme, a pesto, a dip, a spread, a sauce. I went wrong on my first two meetings with Avocados years ago, my parents did, friends, and two or three other people I know from German forums.



I made this video to answer their question. If they can benefit from it (hopefully), then why those of you who are new to avocados not as well...

On health benefits of daily avocados.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6658913/

Quote:
ABSTRACT

Background

Avocados contain fiber, lutein, and vitamin E, and they are a rich source of MUFAs. The effect of including an avocado daily as part of a hypocaloric weight-loss diet on weight loss is not known.

Objective

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of daily avocado consumption as part of a hypocaloric diet on weight loss, body composition, satiety, biomarkers of inflammation, and intestinal microbiota composition.

Conclusions

Daily Hass avocado consumption as part of a hypocaloric diet supported weight loss, a decrease in serum HGF, and an increase in the abundance of bacteria involved in plant polysaccharide fermentation. This trial was registered at clinicaltrials.
