Supports a Healthy Microbiome
Fruit and veggies like kale and avocado support a healthy microbiome. Our microbiome is all the good bacteria in our gut–it does amazing things like providing protection, helping to digest food, supporting our immune system and making neurotransmitters (and MUCH more!). The good bacteria LOVES veggies!
Healthy Fat: Avocado Oil
Avocado oil is a really healthy fat–it is low in omega-6 fatty acids which promote inflammation and has omega-3 fatty acids which lower inflammation!
This easy kale guacamole contains no gluten.
Gluten is a sticky protein that can cause Leaky Gut and promotes inflammation! Too much inflammation is like lighting your body on fire!!!
Kale can have a tough texture and can be difficult for kids to chew. Pureeing the kale will take some of the texture issues away. Also, pureed kale is harder to see, so kids may not even know they are eating veggies!
Try a lick!
Sometimes a bite is a big commitment to kids, but getting them to try a lick is manageable! This kale guacamole tastes amazing, and if they take a lick and like it, then they are more likely to take a bite!
This kale guacamole is a great dish to let kids help with! Mashing the avocados with a fork, adding salt or lime juice, mixing in the kale are all great activities that kids of almost any age can help with! When kids help prepare food, they are more likely to try it!
