My 3 Favorite Guacamole Recipes

Oh avocados! What an amazing food. Great source of good fats, rich in fiber (helps with your weight loss), potassium (more than banana), low glycemic index (no blood sugar spikes) and such an incredible food for your skin because of its antioxidants, like vitamin C.



We can go on and on with its benefits for your health and find numerous recipes, but since today is National Guac Day, I wanted to bring my 3 favorite guacamole recipes. The classic one, one with kale, artichokes and carrots and a creamy one with sour cream!


Guacamole is such an easy recipe, healthy, yummy that any busy person (like me!!) can make it anytime. And besides healthy chips you can use to dip into it, options like carrots, cucumber or celery are always welcome to make even healthier.
