A Rose by Any Other Name

It’s not too challenging to make a healthy guacamole recipe, but more on that below!

According to Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet – 1594), “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” unless it’s not actually a rose, that is.

Unfortunately, when it comes to avocados, we have a problem here. More specifically, guacamole. You see, Kraft is calling a green dip it makes “guacamole.” However, this dip is in fact made out of soy bean oil, corn syrup, and green food coloring. Well, let me not exaggerate, 2% of its ingredients are made up of avocado.

Brenda Lifsey, of California has filed a lawsuit against Kraft Foods Inc., because it is making a fake food and calling it guacamole. And that’s a good thing because a healthy guacamole recipe is just way to easy to make!

Here are some of my favorite healthy Paleo recipes that use real avocados!
