Healthy and Clean Guacamole Dip

I love avocados, and I also love guacamole dip.  The trouble with eating guacamole dip, salsa and chips in most restaurants is that the ingredients are most likely not organic, which will only introduce more toxins into your body.  The tomatoes and peppers in the salsa are most likely sprayed with pesticides, and the corn chips are most likely not made from non-GMO corn, which means the corn is a “roundup-ready” variety that has been bred to resist the toxic weed killer that is sprayed on it in the fields.  I don’t want to ingest these things, so I prefer to make my own guacamole dip at home.

Here’s how to make a healthy version of guacamole dip, as well as suggestions for store-bought mayonnaise, salsa and chips that are pretty healthy, organic and/or not genetically modified.  I don’t have the time or desire to make everything from scratch, so even though I’m not an advocate for processed foods, I do buy a some items that are considered “clean”.

For the avocados, I do not find the need to buy these organic.  They tend to have a natural resistance to pests, so are not normally sprayed with pesticides.  A good article on Marks Daily Apple explains this.

Here’s how to make this delicious, clean, paleo, healthy and easy guacamole dip:

Ingredients for clean delicious guacamole

Ingredients:

1 nice sized avocado, needs to be ripe (when you press on it, it should “give” a little).  If you have a hard one, put it in a paper bag on your counter for a day or two until it gets soft.

1 Tbs “Just Mayo“.  This is inexpensive, cold pressed, gluten free, soy free and junk free.

1 Tbs organic salsa.  This one I’m using is from Kroger.  Whole Foods has a great one too.

1 tsp minced garlic

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

Bag of organic corn tortilla chips

Slice avocado and remove pit. Scrape out inner flesh with a spoon. Mash the flesh with a fork. Put the shell in compost bin or discard.
