Hey, it’s snack time!!!!
I always (to a certain extend) have tried to add some healthy recipes here .But snacking is real fun, and healthy snacking is good for our body also. Only thing is that, we should try to keep a time for snacking.

Monounsaturated fats help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol while also boosting HDL (good) cholesterol.
This recipe is also called Guacamole.
You can serve this with Nachos/Tortilla corn chips.
Ingredients
Avocado – 2 numbers


Lime juice - 2 tsp


Jalapeno - 2 numbers
Salt- to taste
Onion- ½ medium sized
Cilantro – 1-2 tablespoon
Method
In a bowl, scoop out Avocado pulp; Mix lime juice and make it a smooth paste.
Add in finely chopped Onion, Jalapeno peppers, cilantro and salt. Make it a smooth mix using a fork.
If you are using picked Jalapeno (which is easily available), then pour in some of its syrup, to get more flavor.
