Guacamole

A simple yet very essential recipe.

We love serving guacamole as a starter or snack with organic quinoa tortilla chips and/or vegetable sticks. It is also great with our walnut bolognese (recipe in the salads and sides category), our sweet corn and spinach waffles (recipe in breakfast) or as a dip with our cumin kumera chips.

Aside from being delicious, avocados are a nutrient dense food that requires no processing whatsoever. Luckily,¬†they are available all year round, (mostly the Hass variety) so you never have to go without. Here, we’ve included some of the nutritional benefits of this food, so you can feel good about eating it, too.

What are some of the health benefits of avocados?

The nutrient list in avocados is impressive with good sources of Vitamins B5, B6, C and K, and minerals such zinc, potassium, magnesium and copper.  They are low on the glycaemic index (meaning they are good for blood sugar management) and high in fibre.

The healthy fats (mostly mono-unsaturated) in avocados have been shown to improve cholesterol ratios, improve heart health, as well as help with absorption of fat soluble vitamins and anti-inflammatory compounds helping to improve eye health and protect against a myriad of chronic diseases.
Regular avocado consumption also contributes to healthy hair, skin and nails because of its impressive nutrient profile.
