Do You Care If Seeds Get in Your Food?

At his oil demonstration, while squeezing a lemon into a bowl of freshly cut avocado, Fabio Viviani said, "If you're afraid of seeds, I'm sorry." He didn't bother to pick out seeds that had fallen from the lemon into the avocado and pointed out that there's really no harm in consuming the seeds of citrus. Normally I'm nitpicky about getting seeds out of salads and such, but maybe from now on, I'll be more like Fabio. How about you? If a seed drops into a dish, say guacamole, are you careful to pick it out?

Small seeds are fine, even in drinks (extra fiber, lol) but large seeds like orange or grapefruit have to go.

Yes! Especially if it's in a drink, that drives me crazy.

I always pick out the seeds. I hate biting into seeds.

So I guess he doesn't mind if he breaks or cracks a tooth?

Of course, I use lime in my guacamole (like one should), so it's sort of a moot point. I typically use a citrus squeezer - that usually catches most of the seeds anyway.
