Quick and easy meal with healthy fats
It is often debated whether avocados are healthy or full of fat.
My take: if you’re purchasing something out of the store’s produce section, odds are it can’t be that bad for you.
Still, natural food chefs replicate recipes titled “mock-a-mole” using only a small amount of avocado with the majority containing peas or soybeans.
I, on the other hand, embrace the avocado and the powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and nutrients it contains. Of those vitamins, guacamole includes vitamin C, E and K, which are essential for healthy skin and anti-aging.
Yes, avocados do contain fat. But it is monosaturated fat, which is considered a healthy fat.
This following recipe is one of the easiest things to ever come out of my kitchen.
If you already have grilled chicken on hand, this can take as just a few minutes to prep and serve.
My favorite part of about this recipe is the marinade, which calls for honey. Adding honey to a marinade that you plan on grilling is excellent because the sugars caramelize and form a crunchy crust on whatever you are cooking.
