Guacamole provides a healthy dose of unsaturated fat, the type of fat beneficial to your health. Unsaturated fat lowers harmful blood cholesterol, and a diet rich in monounsaturated fat — the kind found in avocados — also lowers blood pressure, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Making your guacamole with one avocado provides you with 19.7 grams of healthy monounsaturated fat.
Eating guacamole also boosts your intake of vitamin C, as avocado, tomato and lime juice all provide the vitamin. Guacamole made with one avocado, one small tomato and the juice from one lime contains 45.8 milligrams of vitamin C — around half the recommended daily intake for men or slightly less than two-thirds of the daily recommended intake for women, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Getting enough vitamin C keeps your skin healthy, and strengthens your blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues.
Eat guacamole as a source of vitamin E. This nutrient helps keep you healthy, slowing oxidative damage to your cells — damage associated with aging and disease. Vitamin E also helps regulate cell communication and controls the level of inflammation in your body. Each avocado used to make guacamole contains 4.16 milligrams of vitamin E, or 27 percent of your daily recommended intake, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Eating guacamole helps prevent the nerve damage and muscle weakness associated with vitamin E deficiency.
Preparation and Serving Tips
Get creative to use guacamole for more than the traditional chips-and-dip snack. Guacamole pairs well with whole-grain bread and vegetables for healthy sandwiches, or makes for a nutritious topping for sliced cucumbers, red peppers or other vegetables. For a lower-calorie version of guacamole, try substituting mashed edamame for some of the avocado in your recipe — each cup of edamame contains 189 calories, compared to avocado’s 368. Adding edamame to your guacamole also adds protein, potassium and folate to your meal.
Russell Tyrone Jones better known under his stage name Ol’ Dirty Bastard (or ODB), was an American rapper and occasional producer. He was one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, a rap group primarily from Staten Island, New York that first rose to mainstream prominence with their 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
Jones was often noted for his trademark microphone techniques and his “outrageously profane, free-associative rhymes delivered in a distinctive half-rapped, half-sung style”. His stage name was derived from the 1980 martial arts film Ol’ Dirty and the Bastard (also called An Old Kung Fu Master, starring Simon “Ol’ Dirty” Yuen); Method Man articulated its relevance on track 5 of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), stating there was “no father to his style”.
Beer-and-Bacon Toffee Sundaes
1/2 cup diced bacon (about 4 slices)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup stout beer (I like Founders Breakfast Stout)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 pints good-quality vanilla ice cream
1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
Sea salt, for sprinkling
Put the bacon in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, until very crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels, reserving the fat in the pan.
Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, beer, butter, heavy cream and a pinch each of kosher salt and pepper to the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until slightly thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Scoop the ice cream into bowls and spoon the toffee sauce on top. Garnish with the crispy bacon bits, toasted pecans and sea salt.

I’m leaving Best Buy with my Walking Dead box set when a volunteer walks up to me and asks if I wanted to donate money to the Veteran’s Fund and I told him, I think I donated enough to military. As I go down the escalator, wondering why was I such an asshole to that guy, I remembered that I was in the military. It’s been almost a decade since I left the military but its seems longer. Most of the time, people have to remind me that I was in the military. When I do try to remember my time in the SUCK, I always think about the weird tasting sodas, goat meat on pizza, smelly men, hours on watch, annoying sand and the heat. The weather in the middle east could beat the toughest dudes in the military. The only thing to do out there was to go to the bar and that’s what I did. I drank and drank until I blacked out. This is probably one of the reasons why sometimes I forget I was in the military.
One of the memories I do remember vividly is being by myself in my bunk or sitting on watch with my CD Player (Yes, those things) just listening to music. It transported me away from the weird tasting sodas, goat meat on pizza, smelly men, hours on watch, annoying sand and the heat. Music was refuge and sanctuary. Even though I was hundreds of miles away from home, when I put on that Chronic disc, I feel like I was on the block again. That’s what music does, it transports and lifts you up from the shit you’re in. If it wasn’t for music I would have probably lost my mind and killed a bunch of people, but I’m thankful for it. Here is a list of what I was listening to in the military circa early 2000s:
1. Eminem (The Slim Shady, Marshall Mathers)
2. Korn (Issues, Follow the Leader)
3. Dr. Dre & Snoopdog (The Chronic, Chronic 2, Doggystyle)
4. Outkast (Aquemini, Stankonia)
5. Lauryn Hill ( Miseducation of Lauryn Hill)
7. Jay- Z
8. Limp Bizkit ( Shut up! You liked them!)
9. NIN, Radiohead, Metallica
10. Hootie & the Blowfish (This is not a mis-spelling)
Memorial Day is coming up. I would like lift up my Pimp Cup to all the dudes and dudettes, who had to suffer in the military, so people could watch a week long marathon of Steven Seagal or garbage like the Fart-Asshians and Honey Poo Poo. If you know anyone that is or was in the military, don’t ask how it was like? Instead, just pat them on the back and get them silly drunk.
Note: Steven Seagal was much more then a cook.
There’s something magical
watching someone self-destruct,
there’s a beauty and honesty
about the downward spiral.
You can’t turn away from it
like an oncoming car crash or an F5 tornado,
terrorizing and destroying
everything around it.
You wish them the best but secretly,
you want to see how far the rabbit hole
they can fall and stumble
past the point of no return.
It’s all our fault.
We did this to them.
We gave them the magic carpet,
then pulled it underneath them.
We put them on the highest pedestal
because we’re scared of heights.
So we make them stars
then wait til gravity does its job.
A nation of vultures
waiting for the next falling star.
Welcome the New Roman Colosseum,
where we crucify our heroes.
