As the weather gets colder my desire for fatty foods increases. (Here’s why)
Recently reading that avocados are helpful for weight loss, I thought I would make some guacamole.
I’m loving how simple guacamole can be – just mash an avocado, squeeze in a little lemon juice, and add salt!
Or add chopped onions, tomatoes, and cilantro to make a traditional guacamole.
Unlimited variations are possible as you can add any finely chopped veggies or even make a blended veggie base in the food processor and blend in a little avocado to make a low-fat version of guacamole.
You can guacamole it on its own, use as a dip, wrap it in lettuce, or use as a delicious salad dressing!
Benefits of avocados…
Avocados are a good source of pantothenic acid, dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and oleic acid are key fats provided by avocado.
They are heart-healthy, help in absorption of minerals, and lower cholesterol.
