Busy People Edition: 5 Minute 4 Ingredients (or less) Healthy Holiday Snacks

By Ingrid De La O , December 10, 2020

Let's cut to the chase. Nobody wants to spend hours in the kitchen! You have better things to do, like catching up on the latest documentaries on HBO, or maybe you want to do some yoga, or read a book…I can give you a thousand reasons.

The truth is that when the snacky brain hits you, it doesn't discriminate. You will reach for the easy, the fast, and the furious.

I don't want to keep you from cooking with a long introduction. Also because these snacks don't really need an intro, they are fierce and healthy. If you want a long story, you can read my bio. That's the reason why I'm always looking for healthy kitchen hacks.
