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)
