Avocado 100gms

My coach has me on a diet with avocado in 2 of the meals, at 100gms and 75gms. Obviously I'm OK to measure avo but how do I keep it from going brown and nasty until I can eat it several hours later?

    Aha. Yes I was wondering if it would. As far as I know it goes nasty when the avo oxidises in the air, so cling film sounds like it would be the go

    Eat half your avo. The other half put in a tub and squeeze lemon juice or vinegar to stop it going brown. Make some guacamole.

    I think I'll give the cling film and lemon a go. Can you freeze avo?

    Best way I have found is leave it in a lidded tub covered in water in the fridge

    I get the same problem.  Best solution I've found is cling film/sealed tub, lemon juice helps, leaving the pip in helps, or making guacamole.
    It's fine to freeze, but goes a bit mushy, so depends how your going to eat it...

    Use a brush or a brush to cover one part of the fruit with lemon or lime juice. This will slow the oxidation process. If you do not have lemon or lime at hand, you can also use oranges, vinegar or tomato juice. Betterof you reduce  reduce the contact of the pulp with the air. Wrap fruit prepared in this way with plastic wrap, put in a closed plastic bag or vacuum bag, or even in a clean container. Place the package in the fridge, where you can store it for the next few days.

    No problem with freezing avocado, Tesco actually now sell bags of frozen avocado halves that are pretty cost effective. Once defrosted they're best either in a smoothie or made into guacamole.
     
    I'd agree with keeping the stone in and covering with clingfilm to keep fresh, just make sure the film is against all the green flesh. Also putting it in a ziplock bag and sucking the air out can help, sort of vacuum packs it.
