I could not live without avocados; if it were up to me, I would eat them all the time, although you have to hold back because they have a high-fat content, that is, it is one of the healthiest fats that we can consume, that is why we should not always be afraid of them. that we eat them in moderation. 

The same thing happens with nuts. 

They are very healthy and are a source of more beneficial fats than others consumed regularly in the current diet.

Since I discovered vegan sour cream, I have kept thinking about it and would add it to almost any savoury dish. 

It is pretty light for a sauce, and it is very, very tasty. 

If you want to know how to prepare it, you can see our recipe for vegan lettuce tacos with homemade sour cream. 

You have to put the ingredients in the blender, beat and have a delicious sauce ready in 1 or 2 minutes.

If you can't get quinoa or if you don't like its flavour, you can substitute it for rice, couscous, lentils or any other legume; in fact, this recipe uses red beans, they are a great source of protein, antioxidants and other nutrients that are beneficial to our health. 

On the other hand, if you want a lighter version, you can do without the sour cream, although it has only 34 calories per tablespoon and is worth it. 

Seriously, this sauce has changed my life!
