          5. Avocados

          Not many people know this, but you can actually regrow this superfood just by not throwing out its pit. Simply wash and suspend it over water using toothpicks by piercing a few through. The water should just cover an inch of the seed. The root-growing process will take while — about 6 weeks for the roots to grow. Once you see leaves growing, transfer it into the soil.
