Guacamole the Primal Way

Avocados are the base of every great guacamole. Avocados a power-food rich in fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, folate, and B6.

A whole avocado contains 320 calories, 30 grams of  unsaturated fat, and 4 grams heart-healthy saturated fat. Just to pile on the goodness, a single avocado contains more than one-third the daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. Yum!!

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium-size avocados
  • 1/2 large onion, minced
  • Juice of one fresh lime
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • few shakes red chili pepper (don’t overdo it, or it’ll be real hot!)

Directions:

First, remove the meat of the avocados and mash in a medium bowl. Combine with the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix together until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

Makes 5 servings.

As a recent recent high school graduate, I've seen a lot of kids struggling with health and fitness over my years in school. I went Primal when my physical trainer helped me really focus on my physical well-being in training for my baseball career. I credit a large percentage of my health and well being on and off the baseball field to my Primal lifestyle. An idea came to the my mind to create a website where kids going into college could find great information on health and nutrition as well as functional fitness. I am extremely excited to be able to write about health in the college world, as a lot of times kids forget how to eat healthy when they go off to the college world. While we saw this as an opportunity to reach out to the college world, we also wanted this site to be a resource for people of all ages struggling with their health as a place for them to go and find great resources and information.

    MMMMM! I could do this with some jalepenos as well!

    Pro tip: Use avocados that are not quite ripe for creamier guac 🙂

      Graham, you’re absolutely right. Using an avocado that is TOO ripe will make the whole thing too mushy and unappetizing!
