Thank God we aren’t scared of healthy fats anymore! Fats are VITAL to our health as EVERY CELL MEMBRANE is made of fat (about 50%!)! Many of us consume low quality fats like processed vegetable oils, which are highly oxidized and extremely unhealthy. How do you think our cells feel about that? Huh?
Avocados present us with so much goodness. Fat, fiber, and protein! This is why guacamole could literally be a meal! Adding lots of cilantro just ups this snack, or meal, to provide your body with more antioxidants and actually assists the body in it’s detoxifying efforts. Thus, adding these two nutrient dense foods together is… well brilliant.
P.S. Note this recipe contains raw garlic
Let’s do this.
- 2 ripe avocados
- Juice from one lime
- 1/8 cup minced red onion
- 1/2 cup Chopped cilantro (optional)
- 1/4 diced red tomatoes
- 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, diced or pressed. (you can substitute 1 tsp of garlic powder).
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
- Dice avocados into small pieces into a small glass mixing bowl.
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Taking a fork, smash and mix all ingredients together. Keep it chunky or make it smooth.
- Salt & Pepper to taste.
Serve with veggies or smear on grass-fed burgers or grilled pastured raised chicken. OR use chips like Siete brand! My favorite are the sea salt! They are made of simple ingredients, the star ingredient being cassava root!
This can be a simple and yummy appetizer to share with friends or just for you! I may have been known to eat this all in one sitting.
