You might think of guacamole as the favorite dip at parties or an appetizer served at a Mexican restaurant. I’m here to tell you that it’s also a great option to build a healthy school lunch!
We all know that guacamole is good for you because it’s made with avocados. It’s full of healthy fats, fiber, and minerals such as potassium from the avocado, which are all reasons why guacamole is a perfect item to pack for the lunchbox!
