Not Your Typical Guacamole!

Morning! 6 weeks of school left as of today. Honestly, where does time go? I’m SO NOT complaining, but doesn’t it seem like I was just counting down 6 weeks until Costa Rica? I am looking forward to taking time this summer to relax, spend time with family and friends and to do some new things. I have to write down some goals to set for the summer; I have some in mind already, I just need to get it down on paper. (Does anyone else make 90 lists a week??)

Yesterday was a super relaxing day. I was up by 7:00 and it is the first day I have felt rested in over a week. I woke up literally with a smile on my face, which hasn’t happened since last week. I sat on the couch for awhile with my 2 cups of coffee and caught up on blogs. I even had my VERY FIRST breakfast cookie inspired and based on cookies by Gina @ Fitnessista.com.

My bfast cookie had 1/2 cup oats, peanut butter, a handful goji berries, handful cacao nibs, 1 tsp chia seeds and a handful of sliced almonds…oh and a scoop of plain greek yogurt with some agave on top.
WHY HAVE I WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS??

We went for a walk to CVS where I bought out the store and then stopped at one of the local vegetable stores. I really, really need to go to these places more often. They just have the coolest produce and items there. I was good and didn’t get too many extra things. 

After we got home from our walk I just had a mad craving for guacamole. I headed to the fridge, found 1/2 an avocado and went to work.

add in some greek yogurt

Not Your Typical Guacamole
1/2 avocado
1/3 cup early peas 
1/4 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tomato, chopped
1 T lemon juice
about 1 T red onion, chopped small (I used about 1/8 of a HUGE red onion)
salt and pepper to taste


Mash up the avocado and the peas in a medium size bowl. If you have a mortar you can use that, otherwise just use a fork and mash it until it all blends together. You can also use a food processor if you like it creamy. Add in the tomato, red onion and garlic, mix well. Then add in the greek yogurt and lemon juice. Depending on your taste add in salt and pepper, starting with 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp sea salt. Add more according to your taste buds!  Cut up some carrots and eat with some chips or crackers!

Guac with carrots, Mary’s Gone Crackers (herb) and Trader Joe’s edamame rice crackers.

*NOTE: I like my guacamole chunky, so I don’t use a processor. If you like it smooth then use one! 


*ANOTHER NOTE: You cannot taste the peas in this guacamole. Danny had NO clue. It really bulks up the guacamole without changing the taste or eating an entire avocado. This was enough for one hungry person (me) or two people who want a snack.
