Chips and Guacamole
2 Haas avocados
¼ cup diced tomato (no seeds, jelly, or water)
¼ cup chopped cilantro
¼ cup minced yellow or red onion
Juice from one lime
1 tsp sea salt
1 clove finely minced garlic
Avocados are a great source of unsaturated fat, potassium, fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C, and B6. The avocado is a miracle fruit that not only helps with digestion but is a fantastic anti-inflammatory. Any weightlifter who does not include this guacamole recipe in his diet is missing out. I promise if you start snacking on this your total will improve by at least ten kilos and your muscles will thank you too.
Slice two avocados lengthwise and after you separate the halves and remove the pit use a spoon to scoop out the inside. Place your avocado on a plate and using a fork gently mash until no solid pieces are left. Add in your tomato, cilantro, onion, garlic, lime juice, and sea salt. Mix everything together and serve with your favorite tortilla chips. The best tasting guacamole all depends on the freshness of your avocados. Serves as a great snack for up to four people or two weightlifters. Enjoy.
