the adventures of a MAD mom

modified atkins diet for seizures ketogenic diet

1/2 medium avocado, preferably Haas

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion

1/4 jalapeno chiles, stemmed, seeded and finely diced

1 teaspoon grated lime rind

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (we use Cholula)

freshly ground pepper

olive oil

Peel avocado and remove the seed.  Place in a mixing bowl.  Mash with the back of a fork until chunky.  Add remaining ingredients and mix with spoon.  Drizzle with olive oil and grind some fresh pepper on top.

I serve this with a quesadilla made with a low carb tortilla and a mix of mexican cotija and sharp white cheddar cheese.  You can add some chopped roasted chicken and/or steak to make a main dish, or serve as a snack.  Casey likes to eat these while watching the Super Bowl or the Stanley Cup.

A traditional guacamole uses lime juice in place of lime rind.  Casey likes to save the carbs, but you can use lime juice if you factor in the carbs.  I estimate this whole recipe of guacamole at 3 carbs, and over 30g. of fat.  Add a quesadilla (ours is 3 carbs) and you have a perfect MAD meal.
