Wholly Guacamole!!

Two years ago my friend Alex made me try guacamole… Holy Sh!t I love the stuff! How did I live the first 24 years of my life without avocados?!

Problem: I can’t shouldn’t eat a whole batch of guac by myself and with the hubs working 12-hour night shifts, he’s not home to help. Also, guac looks gross if you leave it in the fridge overnight.

Solution: Wholly Guacamole!

These delicious 100-calorie packets are made with all natural ingredients (Hass Avocados, Jalapeno Puree (white vinegar, jalapeno peppers, salt) Dehydrated Onion, Salt, Granulated Garlic). I was a little worried about the Jalapeno Puree since I’m someone who cannot handle spicy food. However, the little kick is just enough (sometimes I do add cilantro to it for a little extra pop). These suckers are perfect for me. I can pull one out and it’s not only portion controlled, but I don’t have to worry about the rest of the box going bad overnight (I think the box I bought had 6 packets). Also, easy clean up 🙂

(1 packet Wholly Guac & 24 Tostitos bite-size chips = 240 cals)

Larabar Minis

I recently ordered a box of Larabar Minis after hearing about them on TV. The bars are fruit, nuts, and spices and that’s it! Gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan and kosher. Now when they say mini, they mean mini lol. Here is a pic of them in my hand (keep in mind I have small hands).

However, they are delicious and feel like a healthier snack than what I would normally grab. They are dense so if you eat slowly you really do get a lot out of the 100 calories. I tried the Cherry Pie, Cashew Cookie, and Apple Pie — all of which I really liked. I found out that the local (aka only) health food store has them in the large size so I’ll probably pick up some from there.
