Rock your Guac (and a Super Bowl reminder)

Hello!

Fresh guacamole already holds lots of super-foods, like onion, pepper, tomato, garlic, but why not add a few more? Heck, it’s practically like an avocado smoothie, where you won’t notice a few extra healthy ingredients.

These clever versions might offer inspiration:

  • Guac-kale-mole from Whole Foods

  • “Reduced Guilt” Guacamole with Greek yogurt, at Trader Joe’s

  • Spa Guacamole from Rancho La Puerta Spa, which contains pureed steamed broccoli and green peas

And try spreading it on something healthier than corn chips, like:

  • jicama slices
  • cucumber slices
  • celery sticks
  • sliced red bell peppers
  • hearts of romaine

Or send me your ideas.

And happy Super Bowl–don’t forget that research suggests Super Bowl snackers munch mindlessly, not really noticing whether they consumed raw veggies or fried lard balls!

My best,

Jill
