Healthy snacking during the holidays can be hard when endless appetizers and treats abound. Our healthy Christmas snacks can be enjoyed by the whole family between meals, before the holiday feast, or late at night. We celebrate the season with pomegranate seeds, squash varieties, spiced & roasted nuts, and cheesy bites. With both sweet and savory options, these healthy Christmas snacks are great to have on hand all season long. For more snacks that won't lead to holiday weight gain, try these holiday appetizers and drinks.
Sesame-Soy Nut and Pretzel Mix
If any one dish is devoured quickly and constantly (usually by the fistful) throughout the holiday, it’s snack mix. Consisting of salty nuts, pretzels, and cereal doused with a Worcestershire and butter, this innocent munchie racks up sodium and calories quickly. Our healthier version gives you all the salt, crunch, and bold spices of the original with the addition of whole-grain popcorn, toasty whole-wheat cereal, and spicy wasabi peas. The peas inspired an Asian track with toasty sesame oil and reduced-sodium soy sauce, cashews, and pungent ground ginger.
