10 Snack Items To Stock Your Fridge With For A Healthy Week

It’s that time of year again. The holidays are here, and that means an onslaught of festive cookies, pies, treats, and candies—and it can be tempting to taste each one. But you can still satisfy your taste buds with some healthier options and avoid bingeing on sweets this year. Here’s a tasty list of Modernize’s favorite healthy snack ideas to help you keep your sugary indulgences in moderation.

Hummus – Typically mHummusade with fiber-filled chickpeas and antioxidant-rich olive oil, hummus is the perfect snack option when you’re in the mood for something quick and filling. Use it as a dip or in sandwiches, on salads, and in wraps.

Roasted Nuts – Nuts happen to be a great source of both protein and heart-healthy fats. Just an ounce of roasted nuts in the morning or afternoon will satisfy your need to munch and will fuel you until your next meal—eat them by the handful or try adding a few to your pasta for extra texture.

Homemade Pesto – Pesto can spiff up a boring pasta salad, a morning egg sandwich, or even your evening soup. Ditch the dairy and make your own healthy pesto simply by blending pine nuts, basil, and some lemon juice together until well combined and smooth. more…
