I just wanted to quickly share this idea with you for a healthy Christmas treat! A Veggie Christmas Tree is a fun, festive, frugal and great option for those parties and gatherings where you want a healthy snack to offset the sweets or just a healthy party all together.
As you know, we have started a second site called LiveHealthRun.com and it’s all about our new healthier lifestyle. We share so much here, but in our personal lives, we try to be a healthy, whole-food, organic family (yes, on a budget) and so for our family game night this past week, we wanted a Christmas themed treat. So we made a “Treet” 🙂
The kids loved it, we loved it, we were all happy, satisfied and perfectly fine with this treat for our game night instead.
It’s pretty self explanatory, but here’s how to make it:
- 3 Celery Stalks cut to about 2″ each for the tree base (trunk)
- Bag of snap peas for the branches and arranged to look like tree branches
- Mini sweet bell peppers, cut to look like stars/ornaments and placed on the tree
That’s it! Cute, fun, fast, healthy!
It’s not the most complicated, intricate, creative idea out there, but thought I would share what we made this week in case you need more healthy ideas too!
