With all talk of cookies and fruit cakes floating around this time of year, it almost seems as if healthy goodies are kicked to the curb. Not the case here! I decided to put together my Top 10 healthy snacks that would be perfect to accompany a gift or even earn a spot at your holiday spread. How do you keep things semi-healthy during the holidays?
I recently got a chance to try these cookies that are prided to be 100% natural, contain no additives, preservatives, artificial colorings, flavorings or sweeteners of any kind AND they’re loaded with seeds, grains, nuts, fiber and sweetened with a touch of molasses. I got to try 2 of the 4 flavors—Almond and Flaxseed. But there is also Oatmeal and Pecan as well. Both were hearty, crunchy, and mighty tasty as well!
These are great for anyone who likes to quiet chocolate cravings on the go—check out my full review here.
Needs some hefty and healthy chips this holiday—these fit the bill. A huge spread of flavors will be sure to satisfy everyone from your grandparents to the little ones. Check out my reviews here and here.
These are amazing and come in a wide range of flavors. Whether you want small crackers for dipping in holiday cheese balls, or flatbreads for homemade bruschetta with some cheese, either of these would be a star! Review here.
I am a big fan of this companies treats. Not only do they have healthy pre-baked goods, you can also buy mixes to whip up your own homemade goodness. These would be great for snacks if you’re having family stay over the holidays.
Remember back in June when I won the Father’s Day Decadent Dreams Bakery Cookie giveaway?! Check em’ all out here—they were adorable, delicious, and would be perfect if you don’t have the time to bake/decorate cookies yourself.
I am a HUGE fan of the Fiber Gourmet company. Order there healthy/lo-cal mac and cheese to use in your holiday casserole dishes, or just serve it straight up! They also have a slew of fiber-filled noodles you could use if your making spaghetti too. They recently came out with a Cheez-it clone that of course is much better for you..check it out here.
Recently got my hands on this Silk Egg Nog down at our local health food co-op. I wasn’t sure about it, but I was very impressed! It will be making an appearance at my holiday.
In chocolate and strawberry, these were delicious for dipping fruit. They didn’t have the usual Cool Whip artificial taste when eaten straight. I bought another to keep for a sweet appetizer or ending to our meal…as if the pie won’t be enough ;-)
Cookie post kickoff tonight—stay tuned!
