Avocados are my jam. Not only do we eat an abundance of avocado toast for breakfast (or lunch or snack or dinner), but guacamole is a staple in our house. We love the spicy guacamole from Aldi, but nothing beats the fresh homemade stuff.
Avocado is an amazing source of healthy fats. When i first became vegetarian (and then vegan) my periods became even more irregular and it would be a week (or more) late. After some research I contributed it to a lack of fat in my diet. I wasn’t eating nuts, avocados, or any other sources of fat. I was focused on losing weight, but I needed to remember to eat those (health) fat rich foods.
I don’t have a specific recipe for guacamole because I just use what we have available in our home. Mash the ripe avocados in a bowl. I love to add chopped onion, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and lime or lemon juice. Sometimes we will add chopped jalapenos and/or cilantro if we have it. Taste it and add ingredients accordingly.
Guacamole is great on toast, bagels, baked sweet potatoes, chips, carrots, celery, sweet peppers, and pretty much anything else you can get your hands on.
If you’re feeling lazy, slice an avocado and put it on toast with some salt and pepper to taste. So delicious!
