Guacamole Recipe

By | Blog, Healthy Snacks, Nutrition, Uncategorized

This week’s food item is focusing on avacadoes.  Avacadoes have a high amount of healthy fats.  They are calorie dense so portion size is important when eating avacadoes.  Today, my mom has given you a great guacamole recipe.  I love guacamole, but I usually get in trouble with it, because I eat so many chips with it… yes chips are my biggest food weakness!  Avacadoes are great to put on sandwhiches, salads, and on chicken (ok, I haven’t tried that last one, but felt it necessary to come up with 3 things that avacadoes go good with besides the obvious chips!)

Here is my moms post!

Last week I said I’d maybe send some of Nancy’s Moraccan vegetable stew home with Angela for Dustin….well, I got to bring Ang back to campus on Monday and stay a couple of days, aaannnd even had the privilege of meeting some of you from the oh-so-famous “Bootcamp 5:45 AM” :)!!  Then Ang and I worked out with the next bootcamp, first with Dustin, then Abby took over (someone told me they liked Dustin, but they REALLY liked Abby-said she was even harder than Dustin!).  Okay you guys, these arm and leg muscles ARE sore, and as you all noticed, I had to UNload the wt. bar :(!!

Healthy Hummus Recipe

I am very excited to announce that my mom is going to be a guest contributor to this site.  I am blessed to have an awesome mom!  Growing up she was a great example of how to eat healthy and how to get her kids to eat healthy.  I credit my nutrition knowledge and lifestyle eating choices to her.  Even at 60 years old, she weighs 115 lbs at 5’4 (mom, not sure if I was suppose to say that!).  She weighed 30 more lbs then that in her 20’s, so she has done a great job of losing and now maintaining a healthy weight.  She is now lifting pretty hard which is so important for someone her age.  She even has a goal to do a pullup, which would shock me so much if she was able to do that!

Each week we are going to feature a recipe or ingredient that is healthy.

So here is the first post by my mom!

“Dustin has asked me to do some kind of weekly thing with recipes; what would be neat is if it turned into a recipe exchange, with those of you who can find an extra minute to send off something you and your family are currently enjoying!
