No one likes you when you’re hangry. Make yourself a snack you can feel good about.

Avocado Toast. The best breakfast since sliced bread. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with slices of avocado on crispy toast seasoned with a little bit of lemon juice and red pepper flakes for fiery satisfaction in your belly.

Guacamole. The ultimate snack that almost instantaneously puts you in a better mood. Guacamole can be as simple as avocados, onions, and cilantro, or go crazy and add jalapeños. Turn guacamole into a protein-packed dip with the addition of creamy cottage cheese.

Pasta. Give into your pasta craving without going overboard; sub creamy avocado sauce for heavy dairy-based sauces. You’ll find your mood did a 180 in the short time it takes to boil water.

Salad. Salads often get a bad reputation for not being filling enough. Mixed with protein-packed lentils and good-for-you-fats like avocados, this is a salad we can stand behind.

Pudding. The perfect dessert that will quell your sweet craving without inducing guilt, thanks to the natural sweeteners in bananas and dates.
