Homemade Spicy Guacamole
Confession hour: I have a huge- giant – massive – obsession with all things avocado. And by that, 90% revolves around guacamole [the other 10% I leave to this avocado goat cheese toast.]

Since getting involved with BeachBody and the 21 Day Fix, it was brought to my attention that, while avocados are a healthy fat, they (along with most things in life) should be enjoyed in moderation.

Throughout the years, I’ve made a fair share of homemade guac. Honestly, I prefer the homemade kind compared to the restaurant version, but that’s probably because I jam pack it with other ingredients to lighten it up a bit.

See, when you add different veggies into the guacamole, it packs it with lighter ingredients, making it lower in calories, as well as more guac! (Which is always the better, am I right?)
