Swap Some Of The Avocado In Guacamole For Zucchini

Save: 100 calories
The monounsaturated fats in avocado—the main ingredient in guacamole—may be heart-healthy, but they also pack a calorie punch. A typical avocado-heavy guacamole delivers 200 calories per half cup. For the May/June 2012 issue of EatingWell Magazine, the EatingWell Test Kitchen came up with an amazing (and surprising) substitution for half the avocado—cooked zucchini! This is some of the best guacamole I’ve had—and the swap shaved 100 calories off the real deal. Get the recipe for slimmed-down guacamole and more healthy Mexican dips.
