A week of Blissful snacks

17 Jul

A couple weeks ago, a fellow blogger Nicole (and girl I love to follow on Instagram) sent me some of her granola and boost bites to try.

Love the packaging!

Love the packaging!

At first, I was skeptical. These products are completely natural in every way. Gluten free, dairy free, gmo free, kosher, etc. With all that healthiness, there is no way that they taste good…right?

WRONG.

Everything I tried, I loved. The granola was awesome and I especially loved the bites. The granola was a daily snack in my greek yogurt. One small packet equaled 3 servings for me, so I could really stretch a bag if I measured it out in advance. And the bites made for a perfect 10am or 3pm snack (those are my daily snacking times).

As I said above, these snacks are super healthy. I usually avoid buying granola and pre-made granola bars because of all the extra stuff you get in them. But with Blissful eats, I was snacking guilt free. The bites pack 1/4c fruit, 4g protein and 2g fiber per serving. And the granola is full of nuts, seeds, and good fats.

My favorite flavor in the bites was the chocolate flavor. And my favorite granola was the maple nut crunch.

Want to try some too? Thought so.

Check out Blissful Eats on Amazon and on Nicole’s website.

What is your go-to snack during the day? Have you every tried Blissful Eats?

Recipe: Favorite Guacamole

9 Jun

I love guac. A lot. I used to hate it, but now I can’t get enough of the stuff.

Over the past few months, I have perfected my guacamole recipe, and it is ready to share.

This recipe is totally clean and can be used at every meal. For breakfast I throw it on eggs, lunch I put it on sandwiches and salads, and dinner I will put it on anything that can be used as a vehicle to get the stuff in my mouth. Like I said, I love guac.

  • 3 avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced (I like red onion)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (or 1tsp of cilantro you get in the spice aisle)
  • 1┬átsp minced garlic

Mash the avocados with a potato masher. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy in all the ways mentioned above, or throw it on some whole grain tortilla chips. These are my fav.

Enjoy!!

How do you make your guac? Any tips for my recipe?
