Shedding some pounds, what else! You know the same pounds we tend to put on during the holidays every year.
Anyway, I thought I should post an easy avocado dip that is super easy to prepare and kid-friendly. An avocado dip that is light and delicious with a tangy punch from the lemon, onion and cayenne pepper, served with some fresh cut vegetables (instead of chips) to make it more healthy!
This easy avocado dip is a great appetizer to whip up and serve just before dinner, or its perfect as an after school snack. I guess you could call it guacamole, but I prefer not to since it's missing the tomatoes, cilantro and black olives. Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts on new years resolutions too!

- 3 medium Avocados
