Guacamole is a tasty dip made from avocados. You can use this dip for celery, broccoli, cucumber circles, multigrain chips, and a wide variety of other healthy uses.
The avocado is the perfect healthy fruit. It's high in fiber, practically zero carb, and full of potassium and vitamin E.
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp cilantro
1 lime's juice
salt & pepper
Peel and pit the avocados. Put the flesh into a bowl and mash until relatively smooth. Mince the garlic and mix that in. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice. Add seasoning as desired. Enjoy!
Lime juice is 3g/oz, so let's say you get an entire ounce out of the lime. For the two avocados, those are 3.4g of net carbs each. So your total count for the entire batch of guacamole is 9.8g. This might be a lot if you eat the entire vat of guacamole - but in dip form, where you're putting bits on celery pieces, it's quite fine!
Highly recommended as a dip we should all grow to love and use regularly!
If you're not a fan of the avocado, keep giving it a try in low doses - your tongue will learn to appreciate its flavors :) It is well worth it to train yourself to enjoy the flavors of healthy foods. It means when you're eating out that you'll have more options to choose from, and in general that you can lead a more healthy life with variety and nutrition in your menu choices.
To choose a ripe avocado it should not be rock hard nor mushy - it should be firm with a slight give. The color should be bright green with perhaps a few brown flecks.
