sound_nutrition These Avocados (or Alligator Pears) are perfectly #ripe! The best way to tell if an #avocado is ripe is to gently squeeze the fruit in the palm of your hand. Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm yet will yield to gentle pressure. Unripe Avocados?
Place them in a brown paper bag with an #apple or #banana for 2-3 days. The #plant hormone ethylene, which occurs #naturally in fruits, triggers the #ripening process. When combined in a brown paper bag, which helps to trap the #ethylene gasses produced by these fruits, these gasses can cause the fruits to #ripen together. Nutrition! Avocados are rich in:
Monounsaturated fatty acids, which can decrease risk of #heart disease by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Fibre, which helps you stay full longer and reduces "hangry" feeling. Half an avocado provides 7 grams of dietary #fiber.
Potassium and folate (B vitamin that helps repair DNA). Half an avocado provides 1/4 of one day's worth of recommended daily intake of #folate.
Energy: Half an avocado provides 160 Calories, which is equivalent to #running for 15 minutes. Bottom Line: Avocados are super #nutritious fruits and can be incorporated into your #diet! Dietitian Advice: Get a bag of avocados next time you go grocery shopping! Follow @sound_nutrition for #recipes and #meal ideas with avocados.

bluemoonorganic Great facts on the ripening stages of bananas. No wonder brown flecked bananas are great for baking and smoothies; they have higher sugar content! #foodfacts #realfood #organic #produce #ripening #fruit #homedelivery #bluemoonorganics 4d

Nos baies de raisins commencent à prendre la couleur de leur maturité. Début de véraison dans une parcelle de Pinot Meunier lieu-dit 'Le Paradis'. Une très belle année viticole jusqu'à maintenant. ---------- The start of the véraison (onset of ripening). The colour of our Pinot Meunier grape berries is starting to change. Photo taken in a single parcel vineyard called "Le Paradis" which means Paradise in English.

maxiriedel Great shoot of a #wine #barrel room🏻 Love the #peaceful #environment in which the #winebarrels rest the wine until it is ready to be released. 'Gut Ding brauchte Weile' It Is the #winemakers choice to release his latest release... Nothing should interrupt the #ripening process accept a taste here and there from the proper #Riedel glass🏻 1w
