A roundup of 5 delicious and beautiful smoothie bowls along with 5 healthier snacks and treats to help you with healthy snacking and staying on track with your New Year's resolutions.I don’t normally set New Year resolutions, especially ones related to my diet. I just know that it is pointless for me to cut out sweets and carbs because those are the thing I enjoy most. A cookie with a cup of tea in the afternoon, or a slice of cake with a glass of milk at night are the little things that make me happy. But don’t get me wrong, I strive for healthiness just like everyone else. However, my method doesn’t involve going sugar-free cold turkey, or replacing all carbs with greens. I eat all the things I love in moderation. And I make an effort to add healthier ingredients or snacks to my diet through out the year, and not just in January. And here are some of the healthier snacks I actually enjoy.

5 Smoothie Bowls for Healthy Snacking

All of the smoothie bowls on this list have absolutely no added sugar, and are only sweetened using the fruits called for in the recipes. They are great for breakfast or for a little afternoon pick-me-up.
