Wholly Guacamole!

Guacamole with peas, who knew they'd make a perfect pair? Why with peas? Not only do peas give this dip a nice texture, they also add fibre, protein, and vitamins.

Avocados are full of healthy essential fats, making them extremely satisfying and a great base for dip. There are so many great ways to enjoy this delicious guacamole. Try it with corn chips, on sprouted bread, in a wrap or topped on a salad!
