Homemade Guacamole

 Are you a fan of the avocado fruit? Yes it’s a fruit, but I am sure there’s a whole debate out there, just like the tomato. I don’t care if it’s a fruit or a vegetable, I just want to eat them 24/7. I am so in love with avocados that I am using them in lots of recipes, not just homemade guacamole.  

The nutritional benefits of Avocado include fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. This fruit packs a powerful punch. It may also help prevent cancer, promote healthy BMI and weight loss, decrease your risk of heart attack, stroke and help lower your cholesterol. Avocado is a also a fat, but it’s a healthy fat with a low sugar content. 

Next time you eat a sandwich, skip the mayo and add a few slices of avocado. You’ll pump up the sandwiches nutritional value and it’s delicious!
