This time of year all I want is cool foods. And one of my favorite? Avocados. I think they are pretty perfect. What’s not to like? Packed with good-for-you unsaturated fats, 35% more potassium than bananas, rich in folic acid and vitamin K and full of fiber! Not to mention they taste good.

Where we all get in trouble, tho is the chips…But this guac recipe is super with crunchy fresh veggies, a spread on a wrap, or as an addition to a salad or a vegetable taco. Don’t miss out on the benefits of avocados just because you are cutting down on chips. Even if you don’t have time to make the creamy dip, just slice some avocados and place them on your green salad – like I did above. Yummy, filling and fast, it takes a salad from ordinary to divine!
