Guacamole, perfect Summer fare! And, avocados are so so good for us, as healthy fats for many reasons are essential to every balanced diet. However, avocados are also loaded with tonnes of calories. If you’re watching your waistline, it’s best to limit the amount of avocado per meal to a quarter of an avocado at a time, as a whole avocado can have up to 500 calories, depending on the size. If you’re trying to lose a few kgs after Christmas, or a Mum who wants to maintain weight over the school holidays, you’re best to keep your calorie intake at around 1200 total (depending on your level of activity and gender). This is the perfect alternative to an average guacamole recipe or store bought guacamole . It’s loaded with lots of low calorie extras to add bulk and has a hint of Nori for iodine. Iodine will boost your metabolism and Nori is a great source of this. Serve the Guacamole with celery sticks and sparkling mineral water with fresh lemon or lime.

I do not hold to the “calories in:calories out” diet mentality … biodiverse menus, essential nutrition and fresh organic produce is key as well as reducing stress.
I love the addition of nori to this dish! Iodine is chronically deficient in the modern diet and I have been adding this tasty ingredient to salads for over 3 years now.
