Delicious Healthy Snacks!

1. Apple of your choice with almond butter (Raw and Organic)
-Trader Joe's is my recent favorite (thank you Mike!)

2. Guacamole
-Yea, I said it! Here's the key, make it yourself.  Avocado's are high in fat, but it's the good fat-monounsaturated.

Here is my healthy recipe (serves 4-6):
2 Avocados
1/2-1 whole (depending on the size) diced tomato
1/2 chopped onion
squeeze in lime to taste
minced garlic/garlic powder to taste

*I usually mush up (yes that's the technical term) the avocado before mixing in everything else.
*I'm not a huge fan of spices but if you are cilantro and chili peppers are an awesome accent.
*Try dipping veggies instead of chips
*If you MUST have chips, baked and/or whole wheat are better for you :)

3.  For those of you with a sweet tooth like myself here is one of my favorite discoveries...

No...not Bill Cosby, but Jell-O makes Sugar Free pudding snacks that are ONLY 60 CALORIES and come in a VARIETY OF FLAVORS including Dulce de Leche, Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl, Boston Creme, Cinnamon Swirl...and believe it or not, they taste pretty good and will satisfy those killer cravings!!
*the key = don't eat more than one in a day (if you're laughing right now it's because you've done it or can see yourself doing it)


  1. ooo that jello sounds good I'll have to check it out, and I'm definetly going to try the guac recipe. It seems quick and easy for someone like myself who is cooking retarded. Also for chocolate/ icecream cravings, I suggest these amazing 90 calorie soy icecream sandwiches by soyjoy.

  2. I freaking LOVE guacamole and that's exactly my recipe (only I halve it b/c I live and eat alone :-( sniff).

    Glad to hear it's good for me. And I have been using the almond butter on my apples ever since you suggested in a few months ago during our session.
