Quick and Easy High Protein Guacamole

Print

Every avocado lover always asks for or orders more guacamole, so why not just made your own protein-rich one? This guacamole recipe is fresh and light, and super heart-healthy! Avocados are one of the best sources of monounsaturated fats which can help lower bad cholesterol and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. The addition of lime juice, onion and tomato provides even more nutrients, such as vitamins A and C. The collagen peptides help in weight loss and suppressing appetite, while also repairing digestive problems like leaky gut or stomach ulcers. Guacamole is a wonderful and healthy snack that you can enjoy with anything you desire!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Avocados are one of the healthiest foods in the world. They are full of monounsaturated fatty acids, the kind that increase your good (HDL) cholesterol. They have tons of fiber and vitamins and minerals as well. In large quantities, like those you are likely to eat if partaking in yummy guacamole, the FODMAPs in avocados can lead to symptoms in those with IBS (but it depends on the individual!).
