Mexican soup with guacamole and prawns

soupwithprawnsCarrying on with my health kick, I made a delicious Mexican soup with guacamole and topped it with prawns as my protein. 

This soup will cost you around £8 and serves four people. Rather than using salt to give it flavour, I used chilli and smoked paprika. It not only gives the soup a huge kick, the spice speeds up your metabolism. 

Now I know I haven’t created a traditional guacamole recipe but this is the healthy version that your post-workout body will love you for. Why you ask? Because tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which helps protect your muscles from aches.
