So it’s pizza…but it’s healthy? Yup, these cute little bites are not only super easy to whip up, but they’re also way healthier than the Dominos or Pizza Hut variety. The best part of all is that you can customize them exactly to your liking. Bacon and jalapeno, anyone?

This isn’t the trail mix your learned to make in girl scouts. It’s the elevated version of the classic camping snack and one that you will find yourself reaching for time and time again. Simply toss all of your favorites into a bowl and mix. Nuts, oats, chocolate, dried fruit – literally anything goes!

If you haven’t tried these colorful chips, you don’t know what you’re missing. Seriously, we promise this isn’t a trick to make you eat your veggies. Just thinly slice some of your favorite vegetables – we love beets and sweet potato – sprinkle with olive oil and salt, and bake until golden-brown perfection!

Not Your Average Nachos

These are super easy. All you need to do is buy a bag of corn chips and top with a mix of finely chopped veggies. Options that work really well include peppers, tomatoes, and red onions, but it’s totally customizable. Add a sprinkle of cheddar cheese if you’re feeling like a real treat.
