Ah, Guacamole ~ happiness in a bowl and good food that’s always fun! Guacamole is an avocado dip, classic Mexican cuisine that is loved the world over.
Avocados are a fruit rich in healthy fats, vitamins + minerals with anti-inflammatory properties; fab food for our brain, heart, skin and digestion.
There are hundreds of different recipes, and how we like our guacamole & what we put in it can be colourful. If you don’t have a recipe that you love, here’s mine:
High fibre foods are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are high in fibre.
Anti-oxidant are phytonutrients that can help slow & prevent cellular damage from free radicals that can cause disease. Many plants contain anti-oxidants.
Recipes have blood sugar balancing and low glycemic index ingredients. A diet rich in foods that balance blood sugar helps lower risks of type 2 diabetes.
Snacks, bites & appetiser recipes & inspiration. Sweet & savoury snacks, healthy bites, hors d'oeuvres, appetisers, canapes, fun food to share.
Low-Carb recipes have a low carbohydrate count. No sugar, no grains; no legumes, no starchy vegetables, no high sugar fruits or milk.

STORE in a small airtight container in the fridge. The top may go brown due to exposure to oxygen; it is still ok to eat! Using a smaller narrow container reduces surface area at the top; therefore, less of your guacamole will go brown.
LOW FODMAP diet may be irritated by onions and scallions so omit or add in tiny amounts
IBS – avocados are soothing for IBS red onions and scallions may or may not be a trigger for you – you know your body best!
SWAP LIME for lemon if you don’t have a lime.
TOMATOES; can use 4 cherry tomatoes cut in 1/8’s if you don’t have a big tomato, don’t put all the tomato juice in the guacamole.
CILANTRO | fresh coriander substitute; celery leaves are a great substitute for those that don’t like cilantro. You can also use fresh basil, chervil, parsley, french sorrel.
SCALLION | Spring onions substitute use chives or garlic chives.
