    I like to douse in garlic salt and spread like butter on crackers. In Mexico avocado is apparently known as poor man's butter.

    This is a more work, but I use avocados in roll your own california handrolls.

    Unless we're talking guac, I don't think I've ever seasoned my avocados (beyond garlic, because garlic belongs everywhere).

    Typically, I just smoosh it up and plop the mess on some bread with a poached or soft boiled egg. Sprinkle some smoke salt...done 🤷🏿‍♀️

    You can dice it up and add to your salad.

    My mom likes to mash it up with some onions and peppers, and I think she adds a little mayo or salad dressing.

    Add it to your sandwiches. I've had a BLT with thin sliced avocado before that was delicious!

    I LOVE avocado on sourdough with a fried egg on top. Add salt and hot sauce. Amazing!

    I use guac in tuna salad to replace the mayo. Ah-mazing!

    I cut an avocado 🥑 in half and use a spoon, good enough for me. 😋

    These recipes sound good but do you actually spread it on bread? I thought I was supposed to stay off bread completely.

    Is there a medical reason you shouldn't eat bread?

    Avocado, basil pesto, and tomato on toast; and avocado & peanut butter on a tortilla.

    Why not put it on bread? I like an open face toast with a layer of avocado and tomato slices, + salt and pepper.

    I also go healthy on the bread using 'Dave's Killer Bread'

    Do you like sushi?
    I make avocado stuffed with a mixture of crab meat and mayo. Spoon in to avocado and top with a little pickled ginger, tobiko and soy sauce. It’s a California roll without the rice. So yummy!

    Toast. Mashed avocado. Add Tajin to your taste preferences. Over easy egg on top. Cracked pepper on top. Inhale immediately.

    Cut an avocado. Put an egg and some bacon on it. It’s a good LCHF snack/meal and not bad.

    I make a salad of grapefruit and avocado both cut into slices. Equal proportions and then add Ponzu sauce. If you can't find Ponzu you can substitute with soy sauce and a bit of freshly squeezed juice from the grapefruit or a lime.

    I made the grapefruit/avocado salad tonight so thought I'd post a photo. Avocados were really cheap today and I already have a bag of grapefruit so I will be eating this a few more times in the next week. Also, if you add just a couple of drops of oil (avocado, sesame, truffle or olive) to the ponzu it gives it a slightly richer feel.

    I think I eat avocado every day... Mostly I just throw it on my salad or whatever I'm eating. I put it on my black bean soup. I have made a chickpea salad sandwich with it (mashed up avocado and slightly mashed up chickpeas) with some other things like onion and celery, seasonings. lemon or lime juice. So kinda like a tuna salad I guess.
