I love eating mashed avocado on toast. This Avocado Toast recipe is the best way to snack on it, especially for those on chemo. Go for white sourdough toast if you’re on a bland diet. Coming from a hard peel fruit, the flesh of a freshly opened avocado is safe to eat, as long as you’ve taken care to wash the skin well before cutting into it. My favorite is with just a sprinkle of good sea salt. If you think it’s odd to drizzle agave or honey on it, think again. In Brazil, they eat avocado for dessert with sugar and cream, so go for it!

- Scoop out the avocado flesh and spread it onto the toast by mashing it with the back of a fork. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and a drizzle of honey, if using. Enjoy!
Ann's Tips and Tricks
Hass and Florida avocados are quite different in taste and texture. I enjoy them both but encourage you to try them yourselves and see which you prefer. Here’s a quick guide:
Hass avocados have a gnarly dark green, sometimes almost brown skin, and are about the size of a pear. They are ripe when just soft to the touch and are rich and buttery tasting.
Florida avocados are bright green with a smooth skin and are much larger than Hass. Like Hass, they are ripe when they just soft to the touch. Florida avocados have a lighter, sweeter more watery taste than Hass, and their flesh is less creamy and rich.
