I make this meal ones a week! I love it; it’s fast, easy, tasty and healthy. It is again low carbohydrates which fits perfect in my Sport Fasting way of living and eating. I love guacamole! It contains delicious avocados and is a great “sauce” to add with several other ingredients in this instance chicken or prawns and peppers.
Although avocados may have a bad reputation in relation to weight loss, the regular consumption of avocados ensures that the metabolism is accelerated and the fat content in the blood is regulated so avocados can actually help you lose weight! Avocados are able to control cholesterol levels due to the large amount of fiber. The fruit also has detoxifying properties that help keep blood sugar levels under control. Avocados are rich in folic acid and an excellent source of vitamin C, a vitamin that acts as an antioxidant. The avocado contains large amounts of vitamin D, an essential vitamin for healthy bones. They contain vitamins A, C, B6, B12, E and K, all of which help protect the immune and cognitive system and the nervous and neurological system. The fat acids offer many benefits for the brain, which supports the memory beside this it also helps to control cholesterol levels. Next to all this many more advantages, so all in all a product you can’t miss in your healthy lifestyle.
Tip: I buy the avocado a couple of days in advance, so it can ripe and use it when I think it’s ready.

How to make it?
Start cutting the chicken; I normally use the scissors to cut them. Heat up the frying pan and add the oil in the pan. Fry the chicken half way ready, in the meantime clean the peppers and cut in slices and then in half. Add to the pan and bake them together with the chicken ready brown and glazy. In the meantime, I always keep busy, start cutting the shallot, garlic, cilantro and cherry tomatoes. Check your pan if the chicken and peppers are ready, put the gas low or even off if ready. Clean the avocado by cutting it in half, take out the pit and with a spoon take the inside of the avocado. Smash with a fork in the bowl to a puree. Add all the sliced vegetables in the avocado bowl and mix together. Add the lime juice, tabasco and salt and pepper to season the dish. Stir again. Test if you need to add more tabasco if you like spicy. Get a plate, put the guacamole bowl on the plate and put the warm chicken and pepper on the other side of the plate. With my fork I take both a piece of chicken and pepper and go through the guacamole sauce; so delicious!!
Tip: Replace the chicken with prawns so vegetarians can eat it too. I always have frozen prawns in my freezer, put them in lukewarm water and you can use them within 10 minutes.
Easy doesn’t have to be unhealthy!!!
