"Guacamole, a Balanced Diet", watercolor & ink on paper, 8x10, copyright Erin Rogers Pickering

I LOVE guacamole and I used to think of it as something to be saved for a special occasion. Just to be enjoyed sparingly.  That somehow because of its rich, creamy texture (SO rich and creamy) and the divine, savory flavor that it must be decadent.

Before I went gluten-free chocolate was my number 1 migraine trigger.  I went 23 years without chocolate (yes, 23 years!) and I used guacamole as my substitute when the chocolate craving hit hard!  That oh-so-fabulous Rich Creamy texture did the trick and curbed the cravings that drove me mad.  Those beautiful avacados kept me from having the chocolate trigger migraines that confined me to bed for 4 or 5 days at a time, and unknowingly I was also getting a mega health boost. 

Now that I know all the amazing benefits of avacado it has become a staple in our house.  I make and enjoy guacamole every chance I get, savoring every delectable bite.
