This will be a very short and sweet post about my favorite green fruit and my favorite thing to do with it.
I buy a lot of avocado since I got on the keto train a couple years back. I am no longer living that life, but I’m still an avocad-hoe. I love them. I think we should trade in our old apples a day, because if you really want food that keeps the doctor away; this is it.
You can read up on the benefits of avocado anywhere. I’m just here to share my recipe for fresh guacamole.
As I was whipping this up, it occurred to me that lots of people are still buying that pre-made stuff from the local stores, and while some are good; others are crap.
Maybe it seems intimidating, or appears to be too much work. It’s not. At all.
I did this in 3 minutes flat. It will be the star of my crunchy chicken taco show tonight.
It requires a few ingredients in addition to 2 ripe avocados. I almost always have some over ripe ones in my kitchen because hard as I try to purchase them in stages and consume them before they go bad, it does not often happen. I throw too many out, and they are a little costly in Michigan.
These were the center of my meal planning this morning. Well, these, a juicy tomato, some prepped up chicken, a pack of shells in the pantry and way too much cheese in the deli drawer of my fridge.
Watch how easy this is. Then taste the difference between a fresh batch and that container of preservatives you get in the store.
What You Need:
2 soft avocados
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp lime juice, fresh or bottled
5 turns of ground sea salt
5 turns fresh cracked pepper
1 dash of cumin
What You Do:
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise.
Turn each half to loosen the pit.
Remove the pit by either scooping it or smacking it with the sharp edge of a knife, then turn the knife to pull it out.
Scoop out the soft green fruit.
I happen to have a cute little tool that handles all 3 processes.
I got this one from one of those school fundraiser catalogs, but if I were looking for one, I’d look at Williams-Sonoma or Pampered Chef to find it.
Place the avocado in a glass bowl and add the other ingredients.
Mash it to your liking and serve with chips, on tacos or any of your fave Tex-Mex dishes. If I have any leftovers, I’ll be enjoying it on toast with a poached egg.
Mine will be in the refrigerator for a couple hours incorporating, and I am having a tough time not dipping, but I’m a dedicated intermittent faster, so I must control myself until 2PM.
It’s taking all the will power I possess, as my yoga practice today was WORK.
Anytime you burn 413 calories on the mat, you know you rocked it. For the record, this is a combo of my asana, pranayama and meditation. Mondays are made for mass action and manifestation. I use my time on the mat to work up abundance and good energy for the week. You should try it!!
I’ll see you all tomorrow for a new Tea Tag Chat.
Go get some ripe avocados for your Taco Tuesday if you feel so inclined.
I’ll enjoy these on this Monday!! Yeah. I couldn’t resist coming back to show it on my 2PM taco lunch. A beautiful way to break the fast today!!!
Some tacos with your guacamole, Chelle??
I don’t play!!
Let me know what ya think!!
