Homemade Guacamole & Pita chips.

My two best friends refer to me as Guac queen as I used to make guacamole a few times a week for us to devour. I am a serious lover of avocado and  garlic… ohh how I love this magical medicinal clove.

There are so many wonderful reasons as to why we should include avocado in our diets, here are a few of them:

– Avocados are an amazing source of  ‘healthy fats’ that we need for optimal health

– The oils in avocados are amazing for your skin and hair, helping your skin to glow and hair to strengthen – also avocados can help with the skin disorder psoriasis (which causes irritated red skin)

– They are rich in antioxidants which slows the ageing process and helps boost immune system

– Avocados have anti-inflammatory properties and are rich in vitamin c & folate

– Avocados help to lower cholesterol levels.
