For the love of Avocados...

We are in LOVE with Avocados!

We LOVE eating them plain with a little salt and pepper.
We LOVE putting them on top of our delicious lunch-time salads.
We LOVE making homemade Guacamole with them!  

I used to be afraid of Guacamole and Avocados, worrying about how loaded with fat they are.
HOWEVER, they have the GOOD fats that our body needs! 

I have learned that fats are not the enemies to our bodies that we once thought they were.
Here is just one of many articles stating the wonderful health benefits to why we should be including more avocados in our diets.

Guacamole is as easy to make 
as putting ingredients in your blender 
and blending until smooth, 
letting it chill and then dipping chips in it!

Creamy Guacamole 
1/2 cup sour cream
3 avocados peeled and seeded 
2 cloves garlic 
1/4 cup chopped cilantro 
Juice of one lime 
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (OR, you could add in freshly chopped jalapeno)
1/4 tsp. cumin
(salt and pepper to taste) 
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Put in container with tight sealing lid in the fridge and let chill for at least an hour.
Top with chopped green onions and tomatoes.
Dish into bowls, dip chips in 
and ENJOY!  
We can't get enough avocados...
We can't get enough Guacamole...
especially during the hot summer months!

SO glad that something that we love so much 
has added health benefits as well!
Enjoy some yummyness today!
