Guacamole

Guacamole is such a hit in our home, my hubby and I LOVE avocados! Such a quick and healthy snack.

Avocados are such a great source of nutrition, especially for us nursing mamas! (If you’re not a nursing mama, don’t worry this recipe is just as nutritious for you!). One of my biggest complaints I’ve had as a nursing mother is my increase of hunger due to caloric demands that come along with nursing mamas.

This guac is full of heart healthy fats, to help maintain a feeling of fullness and satisfaction.
