Guacamole is a healthy and yummy snack
I like Mexican food, but on the mild side. I started making guacamole regularly when I realized that avocadoes are really good for you. I make a quick, easy and mild version.
First I mash up one whole avocado. Then I add a heaping tablespoon of my favorite salsa, some lime juice – maybe a teaspoon, a few shakes of garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt. Mix them all together, and that’s it!
I enjoy this guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips, but I’ve also used other healthier crackers that are higher in fiber and lower in fat. It makes a really satisfying snack, because the high fat content of the avocado keeps you feeling full. And don’t worry, it’s healthy fat – not like the hydrogenated fats that we load up our bodies with on a regular basis, sending our cholesterol levels sky high!
Give it a try and let me know what you think.This entry was posted in Recipes on .
