Kettle Chips- Oh My Gosh I’m addicted!

Jalapeno flavor; so spicy and SO addicting.

I like to tell myself they are healthier because they don’t have any Cholesterol or trans fat… but deep down inside I know they’re probably just as bad as lays.

I stick to a 80/20 diet which means 80% healthy and 20% what ever I want.

Kettle chips will definitely be taking up ALL of my 20% today haha!!

Has anyone tried any of the other flavors?

Zesty Chipotle Hummus

image

Sorry… I’m not sorry for this half-eaten hummus picture!

I didn’t even think of snapping a picture before my best friend and I practically devoured it in 5 minutes flat.

Yep it was THAT good.

This is a bit more of an easier way to make hummus. Great for a mid-day snack and it’s the perfect compliment to some flat bread poppyseed chips or even some healthy carrots 🙂

Save yourself some money and time, and make a batch of this zesty deliciousness at home!

Pre-prepare your healthy snacks: Baked sweet corn

Corn takes quite a while to bake. If you’re hungry and in a hurry, you’re more likely to grab something unhealthy because of your lack of time, such as icecream or a bag of chips.
By pre-preparing healthy snacks such as baked corn, you don’t have to wait so long when you’re hungry and in a hurry!

**Like my yellow nail polish?!? It matches the corn perfectly haha I didn’t even plan that!

When you’re ready to snack, simply bake a few pieces of corn at once, keep them in the fringe, and just reheat a piece in less then 3 minutes!

This will make you less tempted to get your hands on junk food.

Eating small healthy snacks between meals is a great way to get your metabolism up!
This half bagel took 2 minutes to throw together, and is the perfect mid-afternoon snack between lunch and dinner.

The sweetness of the all natural raspberry jelly, combined with the fresh blueberries will give you some more much needed energy (since it’s probably already worn off from lunch.)

1/2 FRESH BAGEL
1 tsp jelly
1 tsp cream cheese

If it’s on sale, I prefer to buy organic asparagus

Mince 4-5 cloves of garlic, mix in a Ziploc bag with about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and a table spoon of olive oil. Olive oil is a healthier version of vegetable oil, so I like to use it whenever I can. (I’ll make a post about the difference between the two a bit later.)

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 7-10 mins (until golden brown.)

Ingredients:

  • Fresh minced garlic
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese (you can substitute vegan or your favorite cheese here)
  • Organic asparagus

What to do:

  1. Mince Garlic, grate cheese
  2. Add mixture of garlic and cheese to a Ziploc bag along with 1 tbsp of olive oil
  3. Using your hands, add the asparagus to the mixture and rub the ingredients around in the bag for about 2 mins. This is to evenly distribute the flavors to every piece of asparagus and make every one of them extra savory 🙂
  4. Place the contents of the bag onto a piece of tinfoil and bake for 7-10 mins (until they appear golden brown.)
  5. Eat and enjoy!

Easy, delicious and will impress any guests that you have over 🙂
