As this tasty food continues to gain more and more popularity, culinary masters are constantly serving up new ways to eat the avocado. From avocado smash toast, to guacamole, to avocado caprese salads...you really can't go wrong.
Well folks, here is the latest and greatest avocado fact that will blow your mind. You should be eating the avocado seed!
According to One Green Planet, "The seed holds 70 percent of the avocado's antioxidants, including the well-respected polyphenols associated with green tea."

There you have it — keep the avocado seed and throw it in your next smoothie for all those fantastic antioxidants.
