Another year has come and gone and a new year is here, providing us all a fresh start. From New Year's Resolutions to finally checking off all of the items on your to-do list, this year can be a year of change and growth for the better.
As many contemplate their New Years’ goals, more often than not people want to eat better and snack healthier. Oftentimes with our busy schedules and lives, this can be easier said than done.
We know how easy it is to get overwhelmed with the constants of your day-to-day life, that sometimes it may seem simpler to grab an unhealthy snack or pick up your favorite fast food.
While thinking about eating healthy and choosing healthy snacks may seem like a lot to take on, making the change to a healthy lifestyle is all about consistency and can be simpler than you think.
Of course, our favorite way to snack is with pretzels. The beauty of pretzels is that they are delicious by themselves, but can also be combined with other foods in a delectable way.
We rounded up several healthy pretzel snack ideas for the New Year, providing you with multiple options to add to your daily menu.
Read on to learn about our favorite ways to snack on pretzels.
Create a Charcuterie Snack Tray
There is nothing better than a snack that provides you with a little bit of everything. A charcuterie board is a favorite of many and for good reason. While a typical charcuterie board is made to feed several people, creating personal snack trays is a perfect healthy choice.
Grab a divided Tupperware to take a portable snack tray on the go and add in pretzels, nuts, cheeses, olives, and fruit. The best part about a snack tray is that you don’t have to choose, you can have a little bit of everything, making eating healthy a breeze.
Dip Pretzels in Your Favorite Mustard
Everyone knows that when you have a pretzel in hand, mustard is your first go-to condiment. The saltiness of the pretzels combined with the tangy flavor of mustard is truly a match made in heaven.
Instead of only having the option of plain yellow mustard, grab a few new mustard varieties at the store to keep your choices far from boring. A few you can try combined with our handmade pretzels is Dijon mustard or spicy brown mustard. If you don’t want to run around finding new mustards to try, simply order them online to arrive on your doorstep.
Combine Pretzels and Hummus
When it comes to finding vegan or vegetarian sources of protein, it can be hard to know what to try. One dip that is delicious, plant-based, and provides you with a small amount of protein is hummus. With so many options on the market, you can choose several to snack on throughout the week.
The beauty of each of these options is that they are a healthy choice and are perfect at home, in a lunchbox, or on the go.
While you can enjoy each of these pretzel snacks with any type of pretzel, our Pennsylvania Dutch pretzels at Uncle Jerry’s are the perfect size for scooping, dipping, and enjoying. It is not often you find a large, crunchy pretzel that is packed with flavor and stays strong when scooped into whatever your heart desires.
At Uncle Jerry’s Pretzels, we value transparency and that is why we share exactly what makes up our homemade pretzels. With no preservatives, oils, or added sweeteners every variety of pretzels is perfect for those wanting to eat healthy this new year.
