Currently working and going to grad school. Given my stress level and time constraints (and with my doctor's blessing), I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight, just be healthy and not gain. Once I get my degree I'll pick things up again.
Another way I like to eat it is just in a quick summer salad. I do diced red onion, black beans, diced tomato, fresh cilantro, cubed avocado, toss it all together with some fresh squeezed lime juice, salt and pepper, and it's delish.
You'll never regret the workout you do, only the one you don't.

Talk about fate! I have this page opened up on another tab about the plenty of ways you can use avocados in recipes - and they're pretty inventive with it! I know I'll definitely be using some of these suggestions soon: http://greatist.com/health/39-deliciously- unexpected-healthy-avocado-recipes check it out you might find something you want to try.
Today I put slices of avocado in my turkey sandwich, and it was absolutely delicious. It's one of my favorite foods!

I keep it simple...usually just spoon it out of the shell and eat! Love to do a half a one with shrimp cocktail in it too. I also chunk it up and toss on salads, slice onto eng muffin w/cheese for lunch, stuff slices into tacos.
I have found I need to slow down a bit...so my usual limit now is 1/4 avocado at a time! And, they have to be ripe!! (or they are bitter...) So if mine are too firm, they get set out on the counter for a day or two... patti
By the way GOPINTOS....I'd never heard of freezing them. Thanks for the tip!

Avocadoes are my nemesis...I eat 2-3 a week.
I smush them up, squeeze a little lemon juice on them and some salt and pepper, hot sauce, or cayenne pepper. I either do that on toast or slice up some veggies and dip them in the smushed avocado.
Or I do this: http://kblog.lunchboxbunch.com/2013/04/dev iled-avocado-spicy-curry-sauce-cado.html
I stuff them into wraps, dice on top of salads, etc. Or I just slice one up and eat it plain.

SUNSHINE6442 I just read your post, and it was close to snack time, and sounded pretty darn good.
So I took my avocado (I keep them frozen in the freezer. I cut in half, spray with lemon juice, flash freeze, then put them in a freezer bag)
So anyways, I took my avocado, defrosted, thawed out some crab meat, mixed it together with little balsamic, little olive oil, some garlic and onion. I meant a little s&p but forgot. Wrapped it up in some lettuce. I just made a little, incase I didnt like it. OMGosh, I want more!
This is your journey. Take the wheel and drive!

I make kale-avocado salad (this recipe, except I don't mash the avocado as thoroughly as their instructions suggest, and i use a couple drops of sesame oil instead of the seeds) www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/kale-carro t-and-avocado-salad . I just love this stuff. It's the recipe that got me to like kale.

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE** Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE** Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I'm on low carb. Just wondering how the rest of you eat your avacados
