Who doesn't love guacamole? Packed with avocados, it's a great source of poly- and mono-unsaturated fats, which help with inflammation, are good for your heart and all kinds of other great things. Buuuut... it's still fat. And I know. It's really unfair that a fruit is full of fat, but there we are.
Even though it's a good fat, you still want to practice moderation, especially if you're trying to lose weight or control your calorie intake.
In this episode of Not Rouba's Kitchen, I share this amazing tip for reducing the fat and calorie content of your guacamole, while increasing the fiber and protein. Which means you can eat more! Yum!
And I'm sorry about the hat, Nick, but you know I'm right ;-)
For 2.5 - 3 cups of guacamole
- 3 baby avocados, chopped
- 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed, mashed
- 1 cup tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 1-2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
- The juice of 2 limes
- Pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
Combine all the ingredients Et Voila!
