I love avocado and usually put them in a chicken breast sandwich to substitute cheese.

I don't understand why you can't eat them by themselves either.

I love avocados and eat them regularly. I don't understand why you can't eat them alone or why you have to put lemon juice on them (though I do stick to eating only half). I sometimes scoop avocado right out of the shell and eat it straight off the spoon. Delicious and filling! If I need to preserve the color, I'll sprinkle it with lemon juice but if I'm eating it right then, I don't. I find lemon juice tends to overpower the avocado flavor.

Avacado is a great substitue for high calorie entree cravings. I cut up half an avocado and add it to chopped romaine lettuce, sliced strawberries, 1/2 cup cubed grilled chicken breast with fresh lemon squeezed on top. It is very filling and cuts the calories compared to steak and potatoes or pizza. It also makes your mind desire to maintain a healthy diet.

A friend gave me a great hint for removing the pit. Cut the avacado in half. Hold the half with the pit in one hand. With the blade of a large knife, whack the pit so the knife stays in. Twist the knive a quarter turn and the pit will pop right out.
