The Girl and the Guacamole

Hubby and I watched several installments of Jamie Olivers Food Revolution on television last month.  It was disturbing but made me feel good about the efforts we have made, and been relatively successful with, introducing and teaching our two kiddos about food and making good food choices.

Recently my daughter and I were talking to someone about how much we love guacamole - I asked her if she remembered what is in guacamole; within a few seconds she listed avocados, red onion and tomatoes.  I think she even remembered the lime juice!  I was so proud of her, especially since I had seen the Jamie Oliver episode where he held up various common veggies and the kids didn't have a clue as to what they were (I prefer to believe that was creative editing, but who knows).

Here is our go-to recipe for Guacamole - we absolutely love it and avocados have "good" fat, so eat in good health!
