Is there anything better than summers on the lake with family? Waterkiing. Wakeboarding. Tubing. Cousin time. The only thing I can think of is summers on the lake with all of the above plus this amazing souped-up paleo guacamole. And it’s autoimmune paleo (AIP) and specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) compliant! The first time I ever tried guacamole was on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire. We were enjoying lunch on the dock with our family friends when my mom brought out a big bowl of guacamole. To be honest, the whole green mushy consistency of avocado grossed me out at first, but once I tried the guac, it was love at first sight. I’ve never looked back.
Over the years, I’ve tried dozens of guacamole recipes, and my favorite recipes are the simple ones chock full of veggies. The carrot and zucchini, when chopped finely, do not have much of a taste, but give the guacamole a nice crunch.
Almost every summer, my family spends a week on a beautiful lake in Maine. We see family, invite friends to stay with us, and have a blast. This past summer, my sister’s friends begged me to make this souped-up paleo guacamole every day. Every time I did, the guac was gone in minutes. No joke.
If you want to change your life for the better or bring the best appetizer to the football party, give this recipe a try!
