Guacamole, Arby’s Style

May 29, 2010

I love Arby’s Horsey Sauce.

However, the ingredients are less than stellar…

So, yesterday, I decided to make my own HEABified version.

Simply mix 1 TBSP of pure horseradish (NOT prepared horseradish sauce) with 1/2 mashed avocado.


Mmm, perfect served atop a toasted EarthGrains Multi-Grain Thin Bun with ham and melted goat cheese.


Since my yoga teacher is taking a 2-month hiatus to have her baby, I tried the 50-minute prenatal yoga class from here at home yesterday, and it was great. I would recommend this class for anyone, pregnant or not, especially if you’re experiencing any low back pain. Lots of Cat/Cows and resting in Child’s Pose – just what I needed I’m feeling it a bit this morning, but in a good way, and good news, YogaDownload is holding a special Memorial Day sale. Save 40% off you’re entire order through Monday, May 31 with the coupon code MemorialDay. Happy Yogaing! πŸ™‚

    I love recreating restaurant favorites. The ingrediens in fast food chains sauces more than scare me

    When I ate meat I would put horseradish on everything. I completely forgot about it. I think I will try it on a quesadilla or even on some broccoli. It sounds great.

    My back has been ready to snap this week, I’m going to give that yoga download a go today.

    I haven’t been to an Arby’s in forever…and now I want some curly fries! I bet that guac was spicy and yummy!

  12. May 29, 2010 12:22 pm

    That guac looks wonderful, yum!

    Arby’s Horsey Sauce ^.^ I lol’d.

    I am such a control freak on ingredients now…I don’t allow high fructose corn syrup here! Now I have my kids and husband looking at ingredients at the store. Glad you found a great alternative to do your yoga at home. I need to do some today…woke up with a pinched nerve in my neck. I think it is from hormones. I used to get them all the time when I was pregnant with Max and now I get them with hormone changes. Anyway…maybe some yoga in a little bit.

    Kristy, Yes, I’ve thought about it, but not a big fan of Iyengar. However, I hear good things about the prenatal class.

  17. May 29, 2010 1:14 pm

    Never had Arby’s…never had Horseradish either! Is it spicy? Guac looks good though.

  18. May 29, 2010 1:19 pm

    EML, I’m not a spicy girl by any means, but I love horseradish. It’s not spicy-hot, like pepper, but a lot of it will make your eyes water. YUMMMMMY!

  19. May 29, 2010 1:53 pm

    I never thought of combining horseradish and avocados!! I’ll have to tell my roommate. Two of her favorite things. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been making my homemade vegan slaw dressing w/ horseradish and pickle relish. It’s so good! LMK if you’d like a link. Dont wanna link drop on you πŸ™‚

    Yum! I love new suggestions for avocado. It seems everytime I buy them I eat one then forget about the other.

  25. May 29, 2010 4:10 pm

    I love me some horseradish but the hubs hates it so I usually just get it when we go out. I love the kick it gives you. YUM!

    I love how avocado goes great with so many unexpected things. I made a version of your chocado sauce using 1/2 a cado and a scoop of chocolate protein, it taste like thick pudding!

  27. May 29, 2010 5:18 pm

    Gigi – I know, avocados are so versatile and work great in both sweet and savory dishes. I LOVE them, and your pudding sounds delicious. What a healthy *dessert*! πŸ™‚

    YAY Heather! I am so glad that you posted about the yogadownload prenatal class! I am 33 wks and have been doing the 25 min class along with running–well now woggling! I just finished talking to DH about trying the 50 or 60 min class, especially with the great price this weekend! Also congrats on the pregnancy! You look great!

  32. May 29, 2010 8:56 pm

    Melissa, Many congrats to you as well. Loved the prenatal class – just what I needed yesterday, and I look forwarded to doing it several times a week. I think you’ll really like it, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. πŸ™‚

    never had horse sauce…intriguing!

    YES about the prenatal class! i did that one on monday. NOT PREGNANT but practicing for my own pre-natal class. πŸ˜‰

    glad you liked it!

  34. May 30, 2010 6:40 am

    Clare, How does it compare to your class, and where did you get certified to teach prenatal yoga? I think I would love to do something like that! Do you have to be certified in yoga first and then take a certain number of hours to teach prenatal?

  35. May 30, 2010 7:29 am

    ahh brilliant, thats what you are ❀

    i wish i was better withs pices and sauces.. i'm learning though thats for sure

  36. May 30, 2010 12:13 pm

    Hmm………that sounds pretty good. I’ve never thought of the two together, but they are both great apart so it would make sense.

  37. May 31, 2010 12:07 pm

    this concoction looks surprisingly delicious. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Liza Janda, the teacher for’s prenatal series, was my teacher in San Diego when I was pregnant with my second. She is SOOO awesome and I am so happy to hear that you have found your way to her! She is so incredible. I moved to Idaho a while back and used the version of her classes for my third pregnancy (Ava, born March 29, 10). congrats on your pregnancy! I love love love reading your blog.

    Michelle, You mean the yogadownload instructors are real people? I always though they were just voices living inside my computer. πŸ˜‰ So cool that you took classes from Liza Janda! Many congrats on little Ava, and thanks so much for reading my blog. πŸ™‚
