  • Avocados: Crack?

    Just for fun - but seriously, I feel like I could eat 3 or 4 per day. After reading the EAT MORE FAT thread, I feel completely at ease and like I don't need to save them for a special occasion or something!

        lol well i'm not going to actually eat 3 or 4 per day, but I'm glad that I don't have to obsess about the fat content when I want one. and yes - down with chips!

          You don't have to obsess about the fat content of anything no matter what you are doing on the primal blueprint. Fat is good for you. Just don't eat too much if you are trying to lose weight. By the way, you can get sick of avocados. I know this through personal experience. It is difficult to do, but it can be done.

            I absolutely overdid the avocados. Try to moderate if you can! Sometimes I think the foods I tend to OD on are the ones I should limit or avoid altogether---avocados certainly fit that bill for me.

              I go through about 6-8 a month, just about right for me.

                I remember years ago, when I first moved here from Minnesota (where salsa = catsup) I hated avocados~ bought them on sale, threw away the flesh and grew the pits. How cheap can you get for a leafy lush houseplant! Love them now though! Just bought a bag full at 3/$1

                  I usually go through four haas avocados per week, but I could eat way way more if I were given the chance (and money) to! Man, I miss living in California where I could get 3 for $1! Now I get 3 for $5 here in New England...

                  But, yes, as already mentioned - consume in moderation. The fats are awesome. Only buy a few on a Sunday or Monday -- some that are ripe and ready to eat, others that are hard and will limit your intake because you will only be able to eat it when it's not rock hard! I know that definitely helps me pace myself.

                      I'll have to check if crack also gives me horrible stomach cramps and diarrhea. I'll report back.

                          It's unprocessed and even unheated whole food. Unlike eggs or nuts, it's a fruit. We're supposed to eat it.

                            Did it produce? I will have to try it out if it did

                            I try to do that also and usually find I want some sooner so I have to put them in a paper bag with an apple. When I get a good sale, I have frozen them before, pitted and skinned & sprayed with lime juice. This time, I pitted and sprayed with lime juice but left them in the skin. Haven't tried any yet.

                              Are you saying we are supposed to eat fruit, but not supposed to eat eggs or nuts? If you are, please explain why. Thanks.
