Guacamole
Gensler is a fan: "All those great mono- and unsaturated fatty acids, and it's almost 100 percent vegetables!" But as she points out, guacamole is another virtuous food that gets dragged down by the company it keeps (again, chips are the problem). Gensler suggests taking the amount of guacamole approximate to the size of two ice cubes, and pairing with only about three or four tortilla chips or white-flour crackers. A better (if less authentically Tex-Mex) move would be to scoop the guac with whole wheat crackers, and the healthiest idea of all would be to trade chips and crackers for cucumber slices, carrot sticks and cherry tomatoes.
