Guacamole is such a tasty dip. It’s a party favorite (especially during this Super Bowl weekend!) and can be paired with a variety of chips and veggies. A terrific perk of guacamole is that it’s made with avocados, a food rich in healthy fats and vitamins. This recipe is fresh, delicious, and simple to throw together!
“Guacamole-The Perfect Party Snack
Guacamole is one of those snacks that is a major crowd pleaser. If only we could grow avocado trees in my part of the country! I always have avocados on hand to chop up and add to salads, to top chili or a baked potato. They also add a great creamy smooth consistency to smoothies without adding a strong flavor.
Health Benefits of Avocados
Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat (good fat) which is easily burned for energy. Avocados have more than twice the amount of potassium as contained in 1 banana. Avocados contain fiber, vitamin E, B-vitamins, folic acid and anti-inflammatory properties. They are one of the best conventionally grown fruits to purchase because of their thick skin pesticides are unable to leech into the fruit. If you are tempted to buy organic avocados don’t, save your money to spend on some other produce that has more chemicals on it! It’s amazing when you start researching a specific fruit or vegetable to learn just how much is packed into it. A couple years ago when I purchased my Vitamix blender it came with the book The Wisdom and Healing Power of Whole Foods, which goes into great detail about a great majority of fruits and vegetables and it is pretty eye opening to see how amazing they all are and that they contain way more benefits than I ever thought about.”
