GuacamoleThis is one of my favorite snacks to make on the weekends — healthy guacamole with a crunchy twist (bacon)!!! Yes, you either love avocados or you hate them. My husband and I LOVE them and here’s why: Avocados are packed with various essential nutrients and “healthy” fats making them a deliciously smart snack for any occasion. Referred to as the “alphabet fruit”, you’re consuming vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, along with an enormous amount of potassium.

Try pairing guacamole with whole-grain breads, turkey wraps or chicken sandwiches. Some even enjoy topping their eggs with it for breakfast, which is a combination I have yet to try (or maybe never, lol). Personally, I suggest ordering guacamole with fresh veggies instead of chips for a healthy alternative — carrot sticks, sliced cucumbers, red  peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
