Easy Peasy Guacamole

Sometimes you just need to add a little kick to a dish. One of my favorites is guacamole, as it not only adds flavor, but also provides healthy fat, which is beneficial in the cholesterol department. Add it to your eggs, a salad, or pair it with some carrot sticks for a low-point snack. ¼ cup is 2 PointsPlus®. As this one’s especially easy to lose track of, I always measure my servings.

4 ripe avocadoes

2 plum tomatoes, chopped

Small handful of cilantro added slowly (a little goes a long way)

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

Lemon (squeeze in juice of either a half or a whole, depending on your taste)

Salt to taste

To keep any extra guacamole from turning brown in the refrigerator, add additional lemon juice on top, keep an avocado seed in the guac, and lay a piece of cling wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole. Then top your Tupperware with the lid.
