7 Avocado Myths You Probably Believe, But Shouldn’t

The avocado craze began a few years ago when everyone started going as green as possible, and it seems that the Green Queen isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Packed with healthy fats and fibre, avocado is a perfect ingredient to add to your diet. We’re used to thinking avocado is a vegetable, but in fact it’s a fruit, and that’s only one of the many quirky secrets avocado is hiding up its green sleeve. Here are 7 avocado myths you probably believe, but shouldn’t.

Myth: It’ll turn all brown once you cut it

While it is true that avocados quickly lose their fresh green glamour once you cut them, turning into mushy brown mass, there is a way to keep them yummy-looking for a longer period of time. First, you can try storing the cut avocado in water. If that seems not very delicious to you, then sprinkle a bit of citrus juice on top to keep it fresh-looking. Another trick you can use is storing the cut avocado in an airtight container with a piece of onion. Yep, not very appetizing, but it will do the trick!
