Super Simplyummy Guacamole

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!

Ingredients

  • 2 Fresh ripe avocado
  • 1 Lime
  • Bunch of Cilantro
  • 1 Red onion
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 Tomato
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!

Break-fast will you

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?
