Now that the holiday season is officially in full swing, you may be wondering how you can keep your family on track when it comes to eating healthy. But cookies, candies and treats galore, that can oftentimes be much easier said than done! Nix the sugary stuff this year and check out our list of healthy stocking stuffers that everyone will love, sans the guilt!
Our Top 5 Favorite Healthy Stocking Stuffers
Chocolate Covered Almonds
If you’re searching for healthy stocking stuffers that are a bit on the indulgent side, look no further! Almonds themselves are staples during the holiday season, and they are also a great source of protein, vitamin E and magnesium. Make sure you find ones with dark chocolate, which is known for having more antioxidants (and often less calories!) than the milk chocolate or white chocolate varieties.
Crispy Fruit Snacks
Fresh fruit might not be topping everyone’s list of healthy stocking stuffers, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to get healthy fruit into your family’s diet this season! Crispy Fruit is a great alternative to fresh fruit since it’s freeze dried – which means it will stay crispy and retain its delicious flavor and nutrients until it’s ready to be eaten. Crispy Fruit is a great holiday gift for anyone who’s looking for a healthy snack that’s free of additives and a treat that’s perfectly portable for holiday traveling!
Trust us, this is a must have on our list of healthy stocking stuffers! Spiralizers have become really popular in the past year for transforming foods such as fresh cut carrots, zucchini and cucumbers into delicious veggie pasta! Using a spiralizer to substitute traditional pastas for veggie pasta is a great way to save calories and get more vitamins and minerals in your diet.
Raw Revolution Bars
These little bars pack a ton of flavor, making them a great idea for healthy stocking stuffers. Each bar is made of organic, mostly raw ingredients and are vegetarian and vegan friendly. They come in a variety of delicious favors, including Chocolate Crave and Golden Cashew. Our staff enjoyed their Dark Chocolate Cashew and Mint flavor from their Glo line as well! You can find Raw Rev bars online at shop.rawrev.com or on Amazon.com.
Crazy Richard’s PB Burst
Who doesn’t love peanut butter?! These little PB packets are awesome healthy stocking stuffers because they help to give you a little burst of energy during a busy day. Each packet contains 100% natural peanut butter, minus the salt or added sugar that you might find in other peanut butters. You can even get creative and spread a packet on Crispy Apples for a delicious, healthy on-the-go treat! You can purchase Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter online or visit their retail store locator.
