I can NOT say enough about avocado. They are said to be the worlds most nutrient packed food having vitamins A, E, K, B, C. They also have important trace minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron, and copper. They’re loaded with fiber and even have the highest protein and lowest sugar content of any fruit! Add to that the phytochemicals, phytonutrients, and folate and you have yourself quite the nutrition boost! I eat at LEAST half an avocado every day, adding it to my smoothie for breakfast every morning. But sometimes you just want a chip and dip! Enter guacamole! And if the power of avocado wasn’t enough…CILANTRO! Not only does it taste good but it can rid your body of toxic metals. Binding cadmium, aluminum, lead, and mercury and loosening them from our tissues to facilitate elimination from the body. A tasty treat that does a body some serious good!
3 Haas avocado
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin

2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp cilantro
1 lime juiced AND 2-5 drops of lime essential oil (or more to taste)

- Stir in the onions, tomatoes and cilantro.
- Add more drops of lime oil if desired.
** Optional add ins: 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 jalapeno (seeded and minced)
I added Young Living’s lime essential oil to my guacamole. Because of their strict Seed to Seal policy on all their oils I know they are safe. I am very conscience of what my family and I eat and what we put in/on our body’s. Young Living is top notch!
