Without feeling up the whole brunch

There's nothing worse than picking out what you think is a perfectly ripe avocado only to slice into it and discover nasty traces of brown. This trick will guarantee a green one every single time.

What you do: Instead of pressing your fingers into the peel, lift up the stem enough to see the color underneath. If it's green, you've got a ripe one-it's ready to eat! If it's brown, it's old and is most likely chock-full of brown spots.

But what if I can't lift the stem at all? That just means the avocado isn't ripe quite yet. (You can still buy it--just spot-check the stem to know the right time to slice it in two.)

It's not easy being green. Actually, it is.

Perferendis fuga et exercitationem sequi nobis veritatis voluptatibus corporis temporibus. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
