how to prepare avocado: Nutrition benefits, tips & preparation


Do you crave to know what makes the
avocado the best vegetable? Do you want to know why some vegetables
mix better with the avocado than others and what these special vegetables are? Relax and let Olivier Langlois show
us how to prepare avocados! Because Olivier Langlois makes it a must
to help us! Yeah! Hello everyone!
This is Olivier Langlois. No, I’m not going to play baseball. What I have in my hand is avocado
and this is the topic of this video today. I’m going to depart from the usual
juice recipe topic because I have to get out of my comfort zone and
do some things different from usual. So you’re going to learn a lot of
things about the avocado, hopefully, as I did when
I researched a little bit on the topic. So I want to talk about like,
what are the main benefits of the avocado, what is the best vegetables you can
mix with the avocado, and also the best way to prepare the avocado
and why it is important to prepare it that way. So these are the 3 things I want to
talk to you about today. So the main benefit of the avocado is that
it helps the absorption of antioxidants, and like the lycopene and the beta-carotene.
And these antioxidants we can find them in basically most red and orange vegetables,
such as the tomato, carrot and watermelon. But then, I’m not sure if watermelon and
avocado is a good mix, but theoretically that would be excellent! So if you can come up with a good recipe
with watermelon and avocado that would be great. But if you want to stay more classic, I would say just prepare a salad with
avocado, tomato, spinach and carrot and this is going to help to increase the
antioxidant absorption by 200%-400% so that’s really amazing! So that’s a fruit you want to put
in your salad. Beside that, I’m going to say that the avocado, the best way to prepare it is by
using a method called nick and peel. And basically, I’m going to show it to you. Why is the best method to prepare
an avocado is because there’s a darker green area that is
on the surface of the avocado and this is where all the best nutritions
of the avocado is found. So how you can nick and peel the avocado,
you just cut it in half like around like this,
and then you just have to turn it like this and if it’s prime for consumption
it should be very easy. And then you basically peel it like if
you were peeling a banana. And that way you’re going to have most of
the darker green part of the avocado. So armed with that knowledge,
you’ll notice that in my vegetable juice recipe when I have avocado, very often
because it’s a vegetable I like very much, I take special care to be sure that I have
spinach, tomato, carrot inside the juice as well because it’s an excellent mix
for the reason I stated. See, it’s quite easy! I used to before knowing like what was
the best way I used to basically I was doing is I was taking a spoon,
the nick part I was doing fine, but then after that I was carving the
inside of the avocado with a spoon, which is I guess okay,
but it’s not the best way. The best way is to peel the avocado
like a banana. So that’s something I did not know, and I hope you learned something by
watching my video, you can look into the description of the video,
I’ve placed links on all my recipe including avocado, so you can have ideas
of what you can do with avocado. But it’s a very good vegetable, some experts say it’s a super food
because it has a lot of good properties. So on this, I wish you to come up with
excellent avocado recipes, I hope you enjoyed, and to conclude,
