Avocados don't start to ripen until after they're picked from the tree. If you're buying a rock-hard avocado, don't store it in your refrigerator, as it slows the ripening process. On the other hand, if you have a perfectly ripe avocado that you're not ready to use, storing it in the refrigerator may work to your advantage by prolonging your window of opportunity to use it before it becomes overripe. So the bottom line on storing avocados is store hard, unripe avocados on your counter and store ripe avocados in your refrigerator if you're not going to eat them right away.
Why Fricken Fruit?
FrickenFruit is a website dedicated to making the raw frugivore lifestyle accessible to real people.
Although I have been vegan now for over 20 years, I spent probably the first 10 of those years hearing about Frutarianism occasionally, and looking at those occasisions as a great opportunity to take those 'Fruitarian' jokes out of the closet.
Eventually, I started reading about it out of curiosity, and preparing the occasional raw dish. Like many people, I thought it would be tasteless and that I would miss eating something 'with a little more substance' but then I realized how wrong I was.
1) Eating Raw is a blog where various topics pertaining to the raw frugivore lifestyle are explored. There you will find a wide range of practical information intended to help you live the lifestyle successfully.
2) I am a raw food coach, and help people just like yourself transition into a raw food diet. Coaching sessions can happen in person or virtually, and will cover subjects like strategies for shopping, planning meals, meal preparation and different snacking strategies. With the recipes that I provide in the sessions (also available for order separately) I empower folks just like yourself to develop eating habits and skills that have profound effects on health as well as on energy levels.
