One Last SUPER Super Bowl Recipe . . . Zesty Grapefruit Guacamole!

I know the game is only hours away, but it's not too late to make this amazing recipe I found on an blog site for avocados!   Served along side Blood Orange Salsa and some Southwest Style Flax Crackers this is sure to be a SUPER healthy, Real Food line up that makes citrus fruit the star of your table!

I was reviewing some articles on citrus fruit and Vitamin C a few days ago and found a common thread . . . in a tablet Vitamin C has some benefits, but when ingested in Real Food, particularly citrus fruit, it plays a big role in weight management!  So if your New Year's resolution had anything to do with losing weight eat at least 1 piece of citrus fruit per day.

And let's not forget those avocados - creamy, delicious and filled with fiber, yes, fiber!  Besides being packed with healthy fats, avocados are a nutrient dense food that's packs in tons of fiber.

This recipe is sure to be one of those OMG! All Star's in your file!

Zesty Grapefruit Guacamole

2 Avocados from Mexico, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 pink grapefruit, peeled and segmented with membrane removed and sections cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon fresh grapefruit juice
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients. Lightly mash ingredients together but leave them chunky. Serve immediately.

I hope you enjoy your SUPER healthy Super Bowl party today!  I'm sure everyone is excited to hear about the reactions of your friends and family to these new, healthier and yummy twists on party food!
