Healthy Party Snack Ideas

Happy Birthday, Pretty Providence! Pretty Providence has been hosting TONS of amazing giveaways this week (what else do you do besides give lots of amazing stuff away for your birthday?) and today is no exception! You don’t want to miss out on this giveaway… hint, hint… there may be an amazing BlendTec blender involved.


Let’s get this party started with some quick, healthy party snack ideas. I love fruit. Maybe a little on the side of being addicted to fruit. However, their variety of flavors, textures, and colors make fruit a perfect option when hosting a party. But let’s spice it up a little, shall we?

Have you had ants on a log? I love these little critters. They are fun for kids and adults. You take about 5 or 6 stalks of celery (organic is best) and wash those bad boys. Don’t know the value of washing your fruits and vegetables? Check out my post where I SHOW you the importance.

Ants on la log recipe- No Diets AllowedOnce washed and rinsed, cut them into 3 to 4 inch celery stick. Place about 1 Tbs of natural or freshly ground peanut butter (my favorite is Adam’s Natural Peanut) down the center of the celery. Top with raisins or washed and quartered red grapes. I don’t know which I love more… okay, maybe the juicy grapes on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve. They’re literally finger-licking good. I may or may not have eaten about 8 on my own just now.

I’ve seen lots of different variations of an apple sandwich. You can put peanut butter and granola, almond butter and raisins, or you can try my way. Remember how I’m a fruit-aholic?

Apple slices with banana- No Diets AllowedYou begin by washing your apples and fresh strawberries. Seriously… scrub those babies. Then thinly slice your apples (I did both Fuji and Granny Smith) . To prevent them from browning, lightly coat slices with lemon or lime juice (makes it a little tart) or pineapple juice (a sweeter option). You can use the same method for your banana slices. Top your apple slices with banana and strawberry slices. Viola! Definitely full of complimentary flavors and super easy.

Apple Banana Sandwich- No Diets AllowedWell, you’re going to have two parties… the one going on around you and one in your mouth. Now on to the giveaway! There are crazy amount of prizes including Fit: Vegetable Wash (remember how I mentioned you need to wash your produce?), Whole Foods gift cards, and of course an amazing BlendTec! Come and enter to win!

    My motivation to be healthy comes from getting healthy! When I first started my desk job I gained 25 pounds, I’ve now lost 20 of those and don’t plan on every backpeddling.

    I have 3 little ones that I want to be able to have tons of energy for and I want to live a long healthy life!!!


    Because my pants are too tight lately…I’ve got to work on that.

    I’m motivated to be healthy simply because I feel better, have more energy, and am a much nicer person :)


    Healthier choices always make me feel better.


    I really want to have a healthy family, so I am trying to learn healthy habits now. I’ve been feeding my family green smoothies and I think it made a real difference this cold season.

    As I get older I am getting more and more motivated to stay healthy. I’ve seen too many people who can barely move as they get over the hill!

    I eat smoothies pretty much every day, so I would be pumped about a new blender — especially a Blendtec!!!! Woooo Wooooo! :)


    Oh my, I want this! i have always been health-driven and motivated to stay healthy. We only get one body, and it’s our choice to do what we can to keep it healthy. Sometimes it can be hard, but feeling great is definitely worth it!


    My husband had back surgery recently so we are working on eating better and exercising more. Great giveaway!


    I love,everything listed above! Great ways to stay healthy!


    I like feeling good and not getting sick very often!

    I am currently studying nutritional sciences in college, so staying healthy is an important part of my lifestyle AND my future career!

    I have an autoimmune condition so I am super motivated to take great care of myself because when I don’t, I feel the effects for a while!
