Hey there! Welcome to another friday which means I bring you my favorite healthy recipe of the week! This week I am bringing you my favorite Guacamole Recipe. I thought with the football playoffs starting (go Colts!), it was about time I bring you a bunch of my favorite dips that go great at parties!
I think this past week I have made my husband sick and tired of avocados because I have made guacamole so much! I just love it! For a healthy snack, cut up some fresh veggies and eat those with this dip! AMAZING!
Oh, yeah, and avocados may get a bad rep because they are higher in fat, but guess what? They are high in the healthy fats that we miss in our daily diets! You know those omega-3’s that are essential for ultimate health! Im not a huge fan of fish so this is one awesome, easy, and tasty way to get those essential fats!
So, in other words eat up! These are not going to make you fat! All that candy and sweets you eat will make you fat before a simple avocado will! You’ve gotta start thinking in terms of whats healthy and nutrient dense as opposed to just calories in! This is one food you would be wise to eat up and not skip out on! So start eating!
Yummy Raw Guacamole Dip
1 medium tomato chopped
Juice from 1 lime
Optional ingredients, choose what combination sounds good:
1/4 tsp of garlic powder (1 clove garlic minced is even better!)
ground black pepper and celtic sea salt to taste
2 Tbsp of finely chopped onion
1/2 red pepper finely cut
1/2 green pepper finely cut
2 stalks celery finely chopped
Scrape out insides of avocados and throw away skin and seed. Mash up both avocados. Add the chopped tomatoes and mix. Mix any combination of optional ingredients into the avocado and tomato mixture (can use all ingredients). Refrigerate for 10 minutes and then serve.
What do you think? Not that difficult to make it fresh! It is tastier than that packaged mix you buy in the grocery store and you get to skip all those preservatives and chemical additives that cause health issues!
Try it and let me know how it turns out! Don’t forget the cut up raw veggies to eat with it!
Leave me a comment below and let me know what you will be serving during the football playoffs!
