I’m a huge fan of incorporating California Avocados into my breakfast each and every day. I decided to switch up my normal avocado toast with bread by swapping out bread for a sweet potato instead!

I’m very mindful of food waste. Sometimes it can get really hard, especially with produce! This is a great clean out the fridge meal because you can truly add just about any fresh veggies or fruit and it will make an amazing meal.

My day is always off to a much better start when I fill up on a nourishing breakfast. Avocados are loaded with nutrients and are great for heart health. They will also leave you feeling full! This is a huge win for me.

What Type of Avocados to use

Fresh avocados are important! That’s what I love about California Avocados. California Avocados are born and raised right here in the U.S. They are earnestly cared for by California farmers and picked at their peak, the best time!

Since they are grown close to home, California Avocados go from tree to table in just a few days. I’m so excited spring is here! That means these avocados are in season and are perfect to add to meals.

To ensure you’re enjoying locally grown California Avocados, be sure to check for California on the label!

How to Pick out an Avocado

Avocados are delicate. You can check to see if the fruit is ripe by giving it a quick light squeeze in the palm of your hand, but you shouldn’t press too firmly. Doing so can bruise the green interior you will ultimately eat.

While you’re in the store, you can test pressing down lightly on the top of the avocado near the stem. If it gives easily and retains its shape, the avocado is ready to eat. If your finger leaves a dent, the avocado is likely overripe and could be brown inside. Ripe and ready-to-eat fruit will be firm but will yield to gentle pressure.

Once purchased, I store my avocados in the fridge. This will keep them fresh longer.

How to Pick out a Sweet Potato

I like to look for sweet potatoes that are thick and long. That will make for really nice slices, that will resemble toast.

Do You Have to Peel the Sweet Potato? Can You Eat the Skin?

According to Healthline, it’s actually healthier to keep the sweet potato skin on. The skin on sweet potato is safe to eat. The skin is rich in fiber, other nutrients, and antioxidants that can help support a healthy gut, increase feelings of fullness, and prevent chronic disease.

How to Keep Avocados from Browning

I immediately store mine in the fridge! This will help out a ton. You can also place a halved avocado in water in a covered bowl or dish or squeeze some lemon over top the exposed surface of the avocado.
