Grateful for Guac!

Everyone loves a tasty plate of guac and chips.  Not only is it a delicious snack, but it is packed with healthy fat and nutrients.  Avocados contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals such as vitamins B5, B6, C, E, K, folate and potassium.

Good guacamole doesn’t take a lot of time or ingredients to make and can easily be jazzed up in a variety of different ways to create new and exciting flavors. These twists on the traditional guacamole can be eaten as dips, spread for raw veggies, mixed in salads, and as toppers to your fish and meat.

Here, are some versions that you might want to stash in your guacamole repertoire…

Guac-Kale-Mole

Roughly chop up some washed kale and toss it into your food processor with a little lime juice and olive oil.  Pulse until it is finely chopped up. Add it into your classic guacamole mixture.

Fruit Twist

Feeling a bit fruity? Add some chopped up organic granny smith apple or fresh juicy peaches into your traditional guac for a sweet and crispy twist.

Tropical Sunrise

Craving a trip to the islands?  Why not send your taste buds there by adding in some ripe pineapple and mangos into the classic version?

Italian Flare

Turn that traditional guacamole into an Italian masterpiece by replacing the tomatoes with roasted cherry tomatoes, double up on the garlic and add in some freshly chopped basil, some high-quality olive oil and a dash of oregano.

Greek Style

Dream of those beautiful blue oceans in the Greek isles while you enjoy this modification to class guacamole.  Replace the traditional tomatoes with grape tomatoes. Then add in some chopped kalamata olives, goat cheese and a dash of oregano.  

Fire House

For those of you spicy enthusiasts with numb tongues and iron guts, you will love this twist.  Add in a few extra jalapeños with the seeds, red pepper flakes, sriracha or hot sauce.

Guacamole is flavorful as it traditionally is, but why not kick this creamy healthy treat up a notch with one of these different versions.  Share some of them with friends at your next event and you will have them screaming “Holy Guacamole”.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.

Homeostasis

Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.

Stressor

Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
