Ramen noodles. We’ve all had them some time. Maybe more times than we wish to imagine. And to be honest, they are not necessarily a super-healthy choice, so you wouldn’t want to eat them several times a week.

I absolutely love avocado. I could eat it almost every day. The problem is, their shelf life isn’t very long, so they can go bad fairly quickly. I’d love to stock up when they are on sale for .99, but what would I do with a dozen avocados before they went bad?
That’s why I was excited to see that you can actually FREEZE avocado! Be sure to check out these other MOMtips!
