I love to snack! I don’t know how people can just eat three meals and not snack. I love looking forward to snack time. I eat my three meals but also fit in my 3 snacks. My routine is usually like this. I’ll have breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, and snack. It will all really depend on what’s going on that particular day and how busy I am. My recent snack obsession has been homemade guacamole with blue corn chips. I prefer homemade guacamole than any other store bought brand . The store bought Guacamole just doesn’t taste nowhere as good as when I make it.
Guacamole is super healthy. I can eat a whole bowl of it without realizing it. But hey, it beats any junky snack that’s available. I’ll keep telling myself its the good fat so no worries ;). This recipe is super simple and super delicious as an appetizer, snack, and hell, even as a sandwich spread!
2 Fresh ripe avocado
Bunch of Cilantro
1 Red onion
1 clove Garlic
Black pepper, Cayenne pepper, salt to taste
Go ahead and chop your ingredients up, I’ll admit, it makes it easier to use a food processor and let it chop finely.
If you are using a Food processor to chop your ingredients, make sure to add some squeezed lemon juice so it can get even more flavorful.
Place your finely chopped mixture and add it to the avocado in a separate big bowl.
Once you have all the mixture in with the avocado, put a tablespoon of black pepper, cayenne, salt, and a tad squeeze of lime juice and mash it until you get a desired creamy texture.
I don’t know about you but if I don’t eat breakfast in the morning shortly after waking up, I start feeling a headache coming and sort of nauseous. I try to always have a huge cup of water before I start eating anything. Remember, your body was fasting while you were asleep. It’s good you first hydrate yourself, wait a little, and then make yourself a hearty breakfast. Choosing a healthy breakfast will really help you stay on track and really motivate you to choose the right foods during the day. I know personally if I start my day with a not so healthy choice like a chocolate chip cookie, I will probably not eat healthier later on. I love looking forward to breakfast! I try to always change up what I eat for breakfast so that I am likely to not get bored.
Lately, I have been obsessed with bagels! I am trying to consume less dairy so I don’t use cream cheese, instead I have been using avocado to replace that fatty creamy goodness spread. I like getting bagels from Whole Foods, and scooping out the innards, toasting it just till the edges get a little crispy and the inside soft. I then scoop out avocado slices, spread it on the bagel and add some garlic powder and black pepper. I try to make it more heartier and filling by sautéing baby kale/spinach and 1 egg on a separate pan and add it to my bagel. I discovered that a squeeze of lime added on my bagel brings out so much flavor! If I am feeling a bit fancy, I will add sliced tomatoes as well. I hope this inspires you to have a delicious nutritious filled breakfast! What is your favorite go to breakfast food?
