Guacamole is a versatile dip. It can be used as a topper to a variety of foods and meals as well as a snack dip on it’s own.
Avocados are heavier by nature but are useful for healing if your agni or digestive fire is good. Avocados are a good source of a healthy fat, acting as a nutritive and builder for the tissues as well as moistening your system. They are also a rich source of potassium and vitamin E.
This guacamole recipe lowers vata, is neutral for pitta if garlic is omitted, and increases kapha slightly.
