One of my biggest challenges for the autoimmune protocol is giving up night shades…mostly tomatoes. Sigh.
Condiments are kind of slim picking too.
Because of this, guacamole is becoming my go to condiment. Not only is it full of good, healthy fats, it adds a bit of creaminess to the meal.
It makes a great topping for burgers, I don’t even miss the cheese. It also gives me something to have when we are doing taco night here. Heck, I even eat it by the spoon full!
I like the tartness of the lime and make this a bit salty, it makes up for leaving out the tomatoes. We are big fans of Redmond Sea Salt here. Keeping salt in your diet, when its’ full of minerals, is great for your adrenals!
I have also used fresh onions and garlic but my kids complained it was ‘hot’. Using the powders spices also always for the flavors to mingle a bit better. I love Mountain Rose Herbs (affiliate link) for fresh spices. They taste so much better than the grocery store. Find a couple of friends to order with you because believe me when I tell you a pound of garlic powder is a lot!
