Guacamole

I love the chunky type of guacamole. It give you a bit of texture. I usually add some fresh garlic as well and sometimes I add a bit of sour cream for a smoother, creamier version. Also, if you're making it in advance, it's helpful to put the pit back in the center of the mixture as it keeps it from turning brown.

Low Carb Ice Cream

Does anyone know where you can purchase the Carb Solutions brand of ice cream? Supposedly, it's the best rated in low carb ice creams but I can't find it anywhere.

Help Me Cook for My boyfriend the Health Nut!

I'm sorry this reply is so late but I just recently joined the board. I'm a chef, specifically using organic and healthy foods. There is a misconception with people that healthy foods are boring and can only consist of bland tofu and raw veggies. Not true! Also, you don't have to get really fancy with exotic ingredients to cook healthy. The key is to use fresh ingredients, no canned products or packaged products. Use as little salt as possible by replacing it with lemon juice and fresh chopped herbs. If you are a meat eater, pick meats that are lean and preferably organic or free-range which means the animals are free to graze and eat instead of being force-fed with a bunch of hormone and steroid pumped feed. There is definately a difference it taste! That being said, there is also a difference in price. Be willing to pay more for fresh, organic foods. When cooking, do not over cook your food. No frying either. Use whole wheat flour for baked goods too. Good luck!
