Healthy Kosher Snacks to Make or Buy

Keeping your healthy New Year’s resolutions are easy at first. Full of motivation, you cook healthy soups and stews, and pile your plate high with plenty of vegetables. Eating well for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is part of a healthy lifestyle. But what about the meals in-between? It’s way too easy to give into your brownie craving when you don’t have a healthy alternative in hand.

Healthy snacks are just as important to pack as a nutritious lunch. A blend of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats can give you that extra boost of energy you need to make it to dinnertime. Try making a large batch of one of our hummus recipes below, and you’ll have healthy snacks all week long. It’s also a great idea to keep some store-bought snacks in your purse to keep your junk food cravings at bay.
