Here's our lunch today. A low glycemic fiesta with a low carb cheese quesadilla, homemade guacomole and fresh salsa (from the store).
Also, blueberries!!!! Squeeee! We love blueberries around these parts.
Not too much sugar. 10+ grams of fiber for the entire lunch and two servings of veggies.
If you haven't made guacomole before, it's super simple and a wonderful, fresh addition to your meals.
It's also something that's fun to do with toddlers. I let mine squeeze the lime while I prepped all the ingredients. She also got to stir and mash the avocado as well as add the salt. That passes for High Excitement in our house.
Ingredients for 2 servings:
- 1 avocado
- 1 garlic clove put through a presss
- 1/2 a lime
- Salt to taste
- Cilantro to taste
1.Take a knife and run it in a circle around the avocado. Twist to pull apart from the large pit in the middle. With a spoon, scoop the avocado into a bowl.
2.Mash the avocado with a fork.
3.Squeeze lime over avocado.
4.Add some dashes of salt, the garlic and cilantro.
5.Taste and add more salt, lime or garlic as necessary.
