Wholly Guacamole Salsas Are Both Healthy and Irresistible

On the wake of my birthday week, I’m still eating like a queen. Sunday kicked off an all-day meal fest that started with breakfast and ended with an full-on taco bar at our place. The taco theme was my request as I love absolutely adore Mexican food.

The running joke around the office this week has been that, while my taco bar birthday party has come and gone, the leftovers have supplied my lunch all week long. Monday: Taco salad with beef. Tuesday: Taco salad with refried beans. You get the idea. “Tacos for lunch again today! What a surprise!”

Courtney’s Summer Challenge Week 10 – Eat Your Fruit

Courtney’s come up with a real fruity idea this week, one you’ll want to sink your teeth right into. Eat fruit with each meal!

This really isn’t that hard. The difficulty comes in resetting your habits. So when you hit the grocery store this week, spend a little more time in the produce section. Apples, bananas, and oranges can usually be bought in bulk bags at an affordable price. Also try to take advantage of some of the fresh in-season fruits for summer. Grapes, watermelon, berries are just a few.

And a little known fact… avocado is a fruit… so maybe add a dollop of Wholly Guacamole here and there!

One participant this week will be rewarded with some Wholly Guacamole, our sponsor, and a DIR T-Shirt.

Watch the video and post your comment to tell us how you’re enjoying your fruit.

You’re invited to attend a live Yackit! video chat event with Courtney!

Courtney’s Summer Challenge Week 6 – Eat Wholly Guacamole!

This is the tastiest challenge Courtney’s given us yet. Who wouldn’t want to take on a challenge that requires you to eat guacamole every day? And not hang out in the kitchen making guacamole, but buying it ready-to-go from Wholly Guacamole!

Well that’s your challenge in week 6 – to eat Wholly Guacamole (and/or Wholly Salsa) and report back how you enjoyed it. For Courtney that’s going to be as a salad dressing or topping a chicken breast. Replace mayo, use as a dip, or even use instead of sour cream on a breakfast burrito… either way, the options are endless!

Join Courtney’s Summer Challenge for 12 Weeks of Motivation and Prizes

It’s the first day of summer and we couldn’t be more excited about kicking it off with our new Biggest Loser Correspondent Courtney Crozier! You’ll remember her as a fan favorite from season 11 who dawned the aqua shirt and a whole lot of self-confidence. You might also remember that Courtney lost 120 pounds on her own prior to joining the show, and then posted a 110 pound loss during Biggest Loser.

We promise no one can motivate like this girl can! That’s why we’re launching Courtney’s Summer Challenge. The challenge is a 12-week program fueled by a new video post each week from Courtney. She’ll update on her own progress, as she continues working toward her own weight loss goal, and pose a challenge to everyone for the week. For instance, in this week’s kick-off challenge, she is asking everyone to get out and take a walk once a day.

Win Prizes from Wholly Guacamole and DIR

Share your successes, hurdles, and encouragement for others by posting on each video’s page. At the end of each week, we’ll select one participant to win the weekly prize of a T-Shirt and coupons for free Wholly Guacamole, the official sponsor of Courtney’s Summer Challenge!

Once a month, we’ll select one participant who’s really giving it their all to win a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole; and then at the end of the 12-week challenge, one lucky participant will win a year’s supply of Wholly Guacamole!
