goat cheese guacamole
Tailgating food choices aren’t always the healthiest. With a few modifications, it’s easy to make a healthier and fun take on traditional guacamole.
Avocados are packed with vitamins, minerals fiber and heart healthy fat, including lutein for eye health and potassium for blood pressure control.
Soft goat cheese has fewer calories, saturated fat, and sodium than many of the most popular cheeses made from cow’s milk. It also adds calcium and helps decrease the quick oxidation/browning of the avocado. Also featured in this recipe are cumin, which has anti-aging properties, and cayenne pepper which can boost metabolism while decreasing appetite.
The high quantity of sulfuric compounds in garlic gives this bulb bacteria- and infection-fighting qualities. It also naturally boosts your immune system.
For a fun twist on flavor, you can mix things up by adding some chopped pistachios or mint to this already fun guacamole dish.
