Okay, so today is the most beautiful day we have had in our little city in a long time. The sun is shining, the boys are on their spring break and life.is.good. I just started week two of my detox and I can’t even describe it, I feel fabulous. My body feels light and fresh, I have so much energy and feel so good about what I’m eating and the meals I’m making. I haven’t felt this good in a while! I don’t even want the unhealthy food anymore!
So with the weather being so fabulous, the boys being out of school and me having the energy to enjoy it all, honestly the last place I want to be in on the computer. I thought I would revive an old post today so the blog doesn’t go dead while I enjoy the sun! This past summer, last time I did the detox, I made this fabulous homemade guacamole. Since I’m doing the detox again, I thought it would be the perfect time to repost it! Now… off to make some guac!
Guacamole is a summer staple, isn’t it? By the pool, in front of the TV, or BBQ with friends, there’s always room for guacamole!
Recently, the last 3 weeks, I’ve been doing a detox. It’s really great, actually, I’ve lost 6 pounds and I feel great. The particular detox I am on limits a lot of what you eat because, well, you’re cleansing your body! But one day I just had a craving for something savory and crunchy and creamy and yummy. But then also healthy.
I thought of homemade guacamole. I mean, it’s just a mix of a bunch of healthy ingredients, it can’t be that hard to make, so why can’t I have that? Turns out I can. And so I did.
We had a bunch of avocados lying around (I can eat avocados during the cleanse!) so it was perfect. Oh man, was it good! It was finished that afternoon. Not all by me though, promise! I was able to satisfy my craving & stay on track health-wise. That’s a win for me!
I posted on Instagram & people requested the recipe, so I guess I had to make it again. But who would eat it? 😉
Homemade 5 ingredient Guacamole
Oh yum. The best part of this recipe is that it’s fast & easy too. Not too much going on, just simple and tasty. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 avocados
- 2 tomatoes
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 lime
That’s it! It’s a one bowl operation too, and I love anything that lessens the dishes load!
Here’s how you do it.
- Scrape out the middle of the avocados into a mixing bowl.
- Add the juice of one lime and mash them all up to the consistency you want.
- Cut the tomatoes, garlic, & salt & mix all around.
Make sure you add enough salt for some good flavor. Of course you can do more or less of any of these if you’d like. You can also add some other things to the mix, although then it wouldn’t be 5 ingredient homemade guacamole. 😉
Serve in a cute little bowl with some chips or even veggies & you’re good to go! I also have a recipe for brown rice tortilla chips I made to go with it here. They are also detox approved!
