Easy 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 a high content of fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. This fruit packs a powerful punch. It may also help prevent cancer, promote healthy BMI, and help encourage weight loss. This can decrease your risk of heart attack, stroke, and help lower your cholesterol. Avocado is high in 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 sandwich with flavor and added nutritional value without adding any kind of processed fats or unhealthy cholesterol.
