Healthy Guacamole Plus 5 Creative Ingredients

gut health recipes Jul 08, 2020

An avocado almost took out my middle finger and not having a middle finger would be sad, ha! The numbness still reminds me of the reality horror flick but, the nightmares didn’t last long because weeks after the accident I went back to eating avocados #momstrong I just couldn’t give up the little green Goddess.

Avocados are one of my favorite healthy fats because it’s packed with vitamins, enzymes and fiber. The lack of digestive enzymes are one of the main contributors in gut health dysfunctions. When the gut lacks enzymes food particles are not broken down properly, nutrients aren’t absorbed, and food may be left to ferment and rot (let’s just say - stinky gas!) 

Lack of time is one of the biggest excuses why people don’t invest in their diet. That’s probably why my family has gotten accustomed to not making guacamole and eating avocados out of the shell with pink salt. Not to mention the store bought guacamole is loaded with artificial preservatives, MSG, iodized salt, and dehydrated vegetables. 

For those special occasions you have 10 minutes I wanted to share a few different guacamole variations you can try.
