Supercharge your guacamole with superfoods!
This healthy guacamole recipe takes snacking to the next level by incorporating two of the most nutritious green superfoods: kale and moringa. You're probably already somewhat acquainted with kale's health-boosting properties, but have you heard the buzz surrounding moringa?
The leaves of the moringa oleifera tree are unbelievably nutrient-dense! Typically sold in powdered form, this superfood is packed with protein, amino acids, potassium, calcium, iron, and vitamins A, B, and C. Moringa’s antioxidant capacity is greater than some of the most well-known antioxidizing superfoods including acai and goji berries, green tea, and dark chocolate. It’s great for strengthening your immune system, boosting your energy levels, and promoting healthy digestion. Why not sneak some moringa into your snacks?
Snacking on a Cleanse
If you're doing a juice cleanse and feel the urge to eat solid food, fresh guacamole served with sliced veggies is a great snack choice that won’t sabotage your results. It's also a quick and easy recipe to make when you're easing your body into or out of a juice cleanse by eating lighter plant-based foods!
