Avocado fan’s go wild! Thanks to this clever sticker

We’ve adopted Paavola, Lamingtons, Lorde and Russel Crowe, and it looks like soon another winner from across the ditch we will claim as our own. Wait for it, avocado stickers to tell you when they are ripe, perfect for eating. Bernard Salt will be frothing over these!

A brilliant New Zealand company has developed stickers for avocados that tell you when they’re ripe for the eating. No more bruised squeezed brown mush.

Developed by Freshmax their stickers, with clearly marked colour codes to tell you if the avo is ‘not ripe’, ‘firm ripe’ or ‘soft ripe’.
Unfortunately, they’re not available in Australia – yet – but Freshmax Senior Marketing Strategist Matthew Crouch confirmed they aren’t too far off.

“We’re exploring plans to roll them out across Australia and in other categories,”
 he told us. And by ‘other categories’ he means other types of produce, just in case you can’t tell your bananas from your brown mush.

Meanwhile, shout-out to this Redditor who today has made the world brighter with his/her avocado expertise.

Avocado

“My time to shine: I live on an avocado farm. This colour chart only works for certain cultivars of avocado, notably Hass, which is why it’s popular with supermarkets. It is, however, not the tastiest avo, not by a long shot.

For me that would be Fuerte. Rich, nutty, and smooth, it is utterly delicious, and picks early in the season. But it stubbornly doesn’t really change its colour. Best thing to do with this avo is wrap it in newspaper with an overripe banana and leave it on your windowsill in the sun. Should ripen in a day or two.

General tip: when buying avos, always check the tip around the stem. If the avocado was legitimately harvested, the stalk will be trimmed down flush with the avo skin. If the avo was nicked, the stalk will be completely removed, leaving an indentation in the avo. You don’t want to buy these for two reasons.

First, because obviously you don’t want to support a supply chain that includes stolen produce. But second, there’s a reason we trim that shit down rather thank just yank it off the tree the way a thief would.

When you yank the avo off the tree, you pull the stalk right out, creating the indent. What happens is, that spot begins to ripen wayyyyyyy earlier than the rest of the avo, because the skin has effectively been broken at that point. Which means that at the point where the avo feels rip in your hand, it’s already rotten at the top.

Legitimately harvested avos are clipped at the stalk, then trimmed down, precisely because we want the avo to ripen evenly. We don’t want our consumers to have shitty rotten fruit, we want a nice even squish across the whole thing.”

  • Do you juice or blend? I’m a more a blend kinda gal. ⠀⠀
I rather this, as it keeps the fibrous parts/fiber in. 
With naturally occurring fruits it’s good to balance out the blood sugar with fiber. I find this keeps my body happier than a juice. I also add cinnamon and hemp oil as well. ⠀⠀
What are you sneaky smoothie additions? Macca powder? Açaí? Spirilina? Almond meal? Matcha?

  • The ol’ human microbiome = microorganisms that live within our digestion. 
They live in a perfect balance and are responsible in every aspect, for good health. Things like sugar, antibiotics, high stress can all have a negative impact. 
Turmeric, fiber, exercise can improve it. ⠀⠀

  • It’s true right....? Like the simple things. Drink water, eat your vege, go to bed early, exercise, don’t go to bed on an argument = healthy happy people. ⠀⠀
But! Doesn’t it also make you think of how many indoor plants you’ve killed ☠️😿.....🌱

  • During a consult I may say something like. ‘When I eat...’ or ‘when I stopped eating..’ and clients are super interested in why I eat the way I do. Which shouldn’t be surprising.
So I’m going to run though a week on my plate. Everything and the why. To start things off is my food delivery for the week 👆🏾 this is thanks to a pretty cool company called @oooobysyd - they deliver fresh local and organic food to you and pay fair prices to small-scale farmers. Working to rebuild the community's food system one box at a time. I’m passionate about the environment and sustainable farming practices so it’s great to be able support a business like this.

  • Smoothie bowls aren’t just smoothies served differently, but actually, an improved version. After overindulging, our body needs its dose of fiber to gently cleanse, and this vibrant green bowl is packed with it! I like to slip in different fibers so my digestive system doesn’t get used to the same kind of cleanser, and chia, oats, and flax are my favorite additions. They also add the protein my body misses when I’m not starting my day with an egg-breakfast.
⠀⠀
Do not get scared by the high amount of fats and sugars in this bowl – these are all natural and nourishing, coming from virgin coconut oil and fresh fruits.
⠀⠀
Loaded with fiber and minerals to support a balanced hormone production and digestive cleanse, this green smoothie bowl is great way to regain your glowing skin and boost your mood.
