Fresh Easy Guac

Here’s my basic guac recipe! It’s super easy and quick.  You can also add any extra toppings you want like corn or jalapeños.  Avocados are a great source of healthy fat!  They also contain dietary fiber and vitamin C.  I also love Tostitos multigrain chips with this (although they have no nutritional benefit), but a…

Teriyaki Shrimp & Quinoa Stir Fry
