Extra tasty with a drop of essential oil
This bowl of guacamole was almost finished by the end of the photo shoot, that’s how good it was! The perfect guacamole needs ripe, creamy avocados. A tomato for the fresh taste, a finely chopped shallot, lime or lemon, some spicy chilli and a pinch of salt.
This truly becomes a Holy Guacamoly because of the delicious essential oils we add. A drop of wild orange, lime and a drop of coriander leaf essential oil. All three provide a fresh taste, with just a few drops!
Essential oils are pure plant extracts and can be 50-70 times more powerful than the herb itself. Citrus oils are obtained from the peel of the fruit. They are rich in antioxidants, have cleansing benefits and an uplifting aroma. Coriander leaf (cilantro) has a slightly spicy aroma and also gives a fresh taste.
No essential oils at hand? Then you can leave them out or replace them with an extra tablespoon of lemon juice or some orange zest and some chopped fresh coriander.

Making your own nachos chips
Deep-fried crisps are of course very fatty and not very healthy. The oven-baked crisps that are available nowadays score a lot higher on the health list! But you can also make your own nacho chips. You don’t need nearly as much salt and no oil. How do you do that? Cut (corn) wraps into points, put them on an oven tray covered with baking paper and roast them in the oven. Turn halfway through. Sprinkle with some salt and serve.
