Why it’s healthy: If you’re in the mood for something sweet, substituting a fruit or vegetable for that high-calorie snack cake is clearly a step in the right direction. Additionally, radishes are loaded with calcium, potassium and energy-boosting vitamin C for a snack that will perk you up – not weigh you down.

Cut back on waste: Ditch hard-to-recycle candy wrapper waste (and those pesky extra pounds) by opting for a healthy, homemade alternative. Purchase ingredients like sugar and olive oil in the bulk foods section to cut back on waste, and hit the farmer’s market for radishes and locally-produced honey to shrink the footprint of your snack.
