It’s #Skinny Guac O’Clock time

This is a recipe that has taken me quite a few times to master but I finally figured out the avocado to non-fat greek yogurt ratio. What's great about this is that it not only lightens up your normal guacamole dip, but it also doubles it in size. #yaaaas Guacamole is fun, you can add all…

The Most Delicious Turkey Chili
