Who doesn’t love guacamole? Not only is this classic recipe delicious, but it’s also filled with a vast range of nutrients to keep your body functioning optimally. You don’t need to add any sugar or processed additives to this recipe. Everything used to season it comes from natural ingredients.

You’ll have trouble finding a food as nutrient-dense as avocado. There’s a reason why people have been cultivating it from Central America for close to 9000 years. The Aztecs may have known that guacamole taste good but what they didn’t know is that it’s loaded with oleic acid. Oleic acid is the same healthy fat that’s in olive products that protects you from heart disease.

Avocado is also an excellent source of the essential nutrients potassium, vitamin K, copper, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B5 and vitamin B6.

This recipe is an excellent choice for when you want to keep your insulin levels stable. Fat is the most calorie-dense macronutrient and plays a critical role in keeping you full so you’re not back in the fridge half an hour after eating. Consider a serving of guacamole with vegetables as an afternoon snack to help you get past your hunger cravings.

Want more variety? This recipe is easy to modify if you want to experiment with different flavors. Try adding pomegranate, jalapeño, cayenne pepper or anything else you think will complement the flavor to see which type you like the best.
