Confession: I've never made guacamole before. I love it but fear if I made it home I would devour the entire recipe in about five minutes. So tonight I tried the Guacamame from Appetite for Reduction which is--you guessed it--a combination of avocado and edamame to reduce the fat. If I hadn't made it and someone served it to me, I'd have sworn it was regular guacamole. It was fantastic and is safe to serve guests who would normally thumb their noses at lower-fat versions of things.

I had it on the Veganomicon Black Bean Burgers I made this past weekend. Yum! I'll be baking corn tortilla chips to go with the rest.

I found the recipe here.


  1. don't be afraid of straight-up guac! avocado fat is next to coconut as being one of the healthiest fats in existence. it's extremely hard for the body to store avocado as body fat. and with how hard you work out, you deserve the treat :) go for it, straight guac!

    (sorry, had to, guac is literally one of my favorite foods, and same with my wife - we try to eat avocado as often as possible. i also have a tbsp or 2 of Artisana raw coconut butter every day ;)

  2. I don't know what I'm waiting for to try this. Protein in a lower fat delicious dip?? Sounds great.
