Holy guacamole…

by Christina @ The Athletarian on October 6, 2011

I am obsessed with this stuff.

I bought it at Costco at the beginning of this week and have been eating the same meal every day!  It is all natural and only contains a handful of ingredients: avocado, tomato, onion, cilantro, salt, and garlic.  Want a quick meal idea that’s vegetarian and high in PROTEIN???

  • Get a can of black beans and saute the beans in a pan with SALSA (I didn’t use any oil – no reason, just that the salsa was enough!)
  • Place beans on a bed of lettuce (I used a mixed lettuce that had shredded carrots in it)
  • Top with guacamole, GREEK YOGURT (more protein!) and salsa (you can use soy yogurt too, Emily!)

This is like a healthified taco salad.  I think it would probably taste really awesome on some rice as well.  It would be like a burrito minus the tortilla!  You can add whatever you like to it – corn, hot sauce, peppers, onions!

Seriously, party in my mouth.

Worked wonders after today’s workout: 1 mile warm-up, Stephanie’s leg workout, 1 mile cool down.  I have FitBox tonight too!!!  Can’t wait to be reunited with BOB!

Tomorrow is the LAST DAY to enter my Aspaeris giveaway!  If you haven’t entered yet, GO GO GO!!!

What’s your favourite thing to eat guacamole with??

What was your workout today?

I love taco salads. I cut up corn tortillas and toast them to make chips to scoop up all the salsa and greek yogurt, and it’s delicious!

That looks fantastic! So easy! I make a similar “taco salad” where I saute mushrooms, peppers, and whatever veggies I have as well, and it’s delish. Have you tried that brand of salsa from Costco? I could put guacamole on an old shoe and it would taste delicious.

No but I’ve seen it online! I’m going to try it next time if it’s there :)

Love avocado on anything including soup. Do you eat avocados all by themselves? I often do but everyone tells me it is not normal.

Reply

19 Christina @ The Athletarian October 7, 2011 at 2:50 am

I eat them mostly in other foods but I don’t think it’s weird at all! I know a lot of people that just scoop it out and eat it as is!

I LOVE guacamole on sandwiches, eggs, wraps, you name it. I could it alone. I’ve never met a guac I didn’t love.

I don’t know this brand! I must go to Costco this weekend and find it…..

Speaking “Nacho”…guac + nachos = mmmm. You need to try it. I am so lazy in the kitchen so this is about the best I can do on most days! Healthy, protein-packed and delicious! Let me know if you try it!

31 Chels October 7, 2011 at 2:40 am

I am not a huge fan of guac, but when I do eat it, always with tocas or salsa. Workout today, 55 min cycle/elliptical with some weights!

Nice workout! Guac on tacos is amazing!

34 Christina @ The Athletarian October 7, 2011 at 2:55 am

I know…black beans are the best! Your bum-slow runs are probably my fast runs! No complaining!! You are a machine!
