Day 3: Guacamole on the go!

20140115-132721.jpg

Welcome to Day 3 or easy Vegan lunches,

On of my favourite mid-day meals is guacamole. You can add it sandwiches, use it as dip (great for sharing) or put it on a salad as a dressing. But what about all the fat? In the plant based/vegan world some people consume lots of fats while others feel better on a low fat vegan meal plan. I personally fall right into the middle, I try not to consume too many nuts and seeds, but sometimes I like/need to have a high fat meal and I eat a whole avocado or two. Keep in mind there is a big difference between plant based fats such as nuts, seeds, olives and avocados for example then animal fats or trans-fats. A high fat plant based vegan meal will not damage your body like a plate full of bacon will and it will digest very differently. So don’t sweat the avocado 🙂 Ok, I am stepping off my lettuce box. Enjoy xo Anna.

You need:

*double or triple the recipe and use it as an appetizer.

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 Tbsp of red onion
  • 1/2 a ripe tomato
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt
  • Squeeze in the juice of half a small lime
  • Pepper to taste
  • For dipping you will need organic crackers, you can chop up veggies sticks or use salad greens. You can also fill a whole wheat tortilla with guacamole, yummy.

Directions: Scoop the insides of the avocado into a portable container. Mash the avocado with a fork until all big pieces are gone. Stir in chopped onion and tomatoes. Add the garlic and squeeze in lime.
*double or triple the recipe and use it as an appetizer.

 
3 of my favourite ways to enjoy this as a lunch:
1- Eat on top of organic crackers.
2- Add to a whole wheat tortilla wrap.
3-Mix into a huge bowl of greens. My fav!
