GREEN PEA GUACAMOLE
How many ways you can make guacamole? Like hummus, the possibilities are endless. This time I wanted to add a source of protein to it, so when I dip my nachos, I have all 3 essential macronutrients (carbohydrates from nachos, protein from peas and fat from avocado).
This is a great snack option to promote satiety while promoting healthy blood sugar levels. So often I hear people saying that guacamole has too much fats in it, but the fats from avocado are good ones, mostly the monounsaturated type.
Avocados are also rich in vitamin E, an essential nutrient for skin health and a strong antioxidant that helps to fight free radicals.
