Snack Swap: Veggie Guacamole
October 6, 2015
Forego a plate of greasy nachos for a more nutritious treat. Swap out the chips and sour cream for colorful veggies and Ranch Guacamole. Scoop up this tangy dip with lettuce hearts, bell pepper or celery for a satisfying crunch. Traditional restaurant orders of nachos contain more than 500 calories per serving (and many people eat more than 1 serving!), lots of saturated fat, and cholesterol, too. Avocado is cholesterol free, and a good hunger-fighting snack that doesn’t sacrifice flavor. This recipe is also a great add to sandwiches and wraps!
