We’re already big fans of avocado toast, but Tracee Ellis Ross’s version, made with gluten-free bread and a dash of red pepper flakes, is even more appealing. Plus, the hint of spice and Vitamin C from lemon juice could be good for your immune system.

According to SELF, Banana chips are this supermodel’s snack of choice; she particularly likes the ones from Trader Joe’s for easy on-the-go eating (though this is one snack you can make at home!).

Try dipping banana chips in peanut butter one day, or tossing them with savory spices the next to keep things interesting.
Eva Longoria can’t resist a good guacamole, as she confessed to Self. High in “good” fats from avocado, this is one healthy snack that doesn’t feel like skimping out. Just be sure to make it at home rather than buy pre-made guac, which can have hidden ingredients. Here’s Eva's recipe for a perfect dip, taken from Eva’s Kitchen:
6 ripe avocados, diced
4 medium tomatoes, diced
1 large white onion, finely chopped
1 medium serrano pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tsp kosher salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
