Get strong in 2024 with my 12 week program: Find Your Fit



When avocados are on sale at Aldi, I always stock up.  Lately I've been buying a few too many, and instead of letting them go to waste, I've been making guacamole.  Avocados are what is considered a healthy fat.  They are high in monounsaturated fat, which is an omega-9 fatty acid.  They are also rich in the following vitamins: K, E, C, B6, Magnesium, Zinc, Folate and Calcium.  They actually have more potassium than bananas!  Monounsaturated fats help your body to better absorb vitamins: A, K, D, and E.  They are high in calories, so if you're counting calories or macros, you may want to limit how much you eat.  I tend to eat 1/2 of an avocado almost every day, but I don't count or track anything.

Back to Guacamole.  I started making my own Guacamole a while back, and I think I've perfected the recipe.



  • 2 ripe avocados
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lime
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp chopped red onion
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Slice the avocados lengthwise, stopping at the seed in the middle.  Run the knife along the outside if the avocado, all the way around.  Then slightly twist and pull the two pieces a part.
  • Next I slice those halves in half, then peel off the skin and place avocado in a bowl.
  • Mash the avocado with a fork and then set aside.
  • Add the lime juice to the avocado
  • Chop the garlic, cilantro and red onion and add to the avocado and lime mixture.
  • Mash everything together with a fork.  Once well mixed add salt and pepper to taste.

That's it!  Enjoy with chips, tacos, fajitas, with crackers, or with diced up veggies.  Happy snacking!  Check out my Taco Seasoning recipe too.
