Homemade Snacks to Keep your New Year’s Resolutions on Track

Keeping your health and diet-related New Year's resolutions can be difficult. Make it easier to achieve your goals with these healthy and easy-to-make snacks.

Easy Homemade Hummus

What could be quicker and easier than just tossing ingredients into a food processor? Ready in a matter of minutes, hummus is a healthy and delicious way to stay full between meals. Click here for our best hummus recipes.

Flavored Popcorn

Forget the butter-drenched popcorn that comes in a microwavable bag; air-popped (or pan-popped) kernels topped with flavorful seasonings like rosemary, cayenne, or shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano make a tasty and filling whole-grain snack. Click here for our best popcorn recipes.

Fruit and Dark Chocolate

We all know that a little antioxidant-rich dark chocolate paired with fresh fruit is a healthy way to indulge your chocolate cravings, but sometimes melting chocolate (and then washing the dishes) makes it easier to give into an unhealthy candy bar. If you need a quick chocolate fix, try sticking a few semi-sweet chocolate chips into halved strawberries for a quick, no-cook chocolate snack. Click here for the recipe.

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Cut hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Discard the yolks. Fill the egg whites with guacamole. Then, try not to get addicted. Click here for our best guacamole recipes.

Protein Bars

If you burn a lot of calories exercising each day, consider making your own protein bars. They're easy to adapt to the ingredients that you have on hand in your own pantry (you can use any nuts, for example) and they store and travel well. Click here for the recipe.

Roasted Beet Salsa

Making salsa is a great way to take advantage of the fruits and vegetables that are in season. Instead of a summery tomato salsa, try this cold-weather version using roasted beets and fresh oranges. It's great on whole-wheat pita chips. Click here for the recipe.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Once you have the basic technique down, the variations on roasted pumpkin seeds are near endless. Sprinkle them with anything from cinnamon to za'atar before roasting them in the oven. Click here for the recipe.

Sweet Potato Fries

Give a classic comfort food a healthy makeover by using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes and baking the "fries" in the oven. As an added bonus, they're delicious, perfectly sweet, and spicy. Click here for the recipe.

White Bean Dip

If you're not a fan of hummus, try this white bean-based alternative. You'll still get all the fiber and protein but with a completely different flavor. Click here for the recipe.
