Guacamole was first made by the Aztecs in the 16th century. The name itself comes from the Aztec word Nahuatl, which means avocado sauce. I think they were on to something!
I love guacamole, in fact I think most of the world loves guacamole, and it can be used as a dip, as a garnish for tacos, burritos, eggs and soups, in a salad or as a spread instead of mayonnaise. I mean who wouldn’t love this healthy delicious mix made from avocados.
And avocados, also known as alligator pears for their leathery skin, have their fair share of nutrients, and should be a part of everyone’s diet. Recent research has shown that when adding avocado to salads or salsas, the absorption of two key antioxidants, lycopene and beta-carotene, increase by as much as 200%-400%. And avocados have their own share of carotenoids (antioxidants) such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and lutein as well as lesser known ones. It is also high in dietary fiber, low on the glycemic index helping to regulate blood sugar levels, and has important cancer-fighting properties.
One of the supposed downsides of avocados is its high fat content, about 85% of its calories come from fat, but the fat that it contains is a healthy type of fat. This fat has been found to lower the risk of heart disease, has important anti-inflammatory properties as well as a high amount of oleic acid (a fatty acid), similar to that found in olives, that helps our absorption of fat soluble antioxidants.
