Healthy Snack: The Perfect Guacamole

I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like guacamole. It really is the perfect dish to bring to a party or serve as an appetizer. Not only is it a crowd favourite, but guac is actually good for us too! It’s totally raw which means it contains all the living enzymes and nutrients that nature intended. As well, guac is a great source of healthy fats which contrary to popular belief are not to be feared!! Cilantro: This green herb is a potent detoxifier and is known to help remove heavy metals from the body. Some people love it and some people hate it but it’s a definite MUST in any guacamole recipe. Hemp Seeds: They are the most nutritious seed in the world! Hemp Seeds are also a complete protein and just the right balance of essential fatty acids. Raw hemp provides a broad spectrum of health benefits and are perfect to throw on top of salads, soups, in energy balls and smoothies! Here is how I make my Guacamole… Guacamole-recipe-gillian-b Ingredients: 2 avocado, ripe and scooped out 1-2 big cloves of garlic, pressed or minced juice of a lime 1/3 cup chopped, organic, cilantro Himalayan Sea Salt to taste   Optional Addition: Hemp Seeds (mixed in or sprinkled on top)  half a tomato, diced   Preparation: Scoop out avocados and place everything in a bowl. Use a potato masher to combine all ingredients. Garnish with more cilantro and/or hemp seeds. If you are storing the dish before serving, throw one of the avocado pits in it to prevent it from browning. Enjoy! Image and Recipe from:
