Being a plant mom has nothing on bringing home a batch of avocados. My indoor jungle is still #thriving with hardly any maintenance, but avos, on the other hand, need to be constantly babied. Because the second you blink, they go from hard and unripe to completely rotten. There is a solution, though. You just have to get the mini version.
If you venture into Trader Joe’s, you might notice the healthy grocer’s Teeny Tiny Avocados are back. While the full-size versions are hard to eat before they go bad, these little cuties are half the size. And it’s the exact amount you need for your avocado toast, with nothing left over to turn brown in the fridge—not to mention the easiest way to get your healthy fat fix on the go, as the single-serve option can fit right in your purse.
While the mini avocados, which range from $2.69 to $2.99 for a six-pack, seem like a special variety, Men’s Health says they’re regular ol’ California Haas avocados—just ones that didn’t reach their full sizes due to poor weather conditions. Because of that, you can expect the same taste, texture, and nutritional punch you know and love. Each is 160 calories and contains 15 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. So instead of quitting your job to become a full-time avocado babysitter, maybe just grab a couple of these pint-size bags instead.
Trader Joe’s is on a roll. The next time you visit, also stock up on the store’s new moisturizer that’s basically a dupe for La Mer, as well as the gluten-free broccoli and kale pizza crust.
