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!
