With the Holidays quickly approaching I have been thinking about starting new family traditions. I remember back to when I was growing up and all of the holiday traditions that my family made. The excitement that would come over me when we would partake in those traditions is something that I fondly remember. Now that I have a family of my own, I am eager to start our own traditions and carry on some old ones from my childhood as well.
My husband and I take pride in living a healthy lifestyle and passing that on to our little ones. We plan to incorporate healthy ideas into our family traditions so that our children will do the same when the time comes that they have families of their own. One of those is going to be eating healthy snacks throughout the holiday season. We plan to find new snack ideas as well as cleaning up some old traditional holiday treats. Many Americans, including my husband and myself have a distinct memories of Hickory Farms at our holiday gatherings. I am excited to find healthy ways to incorporate Hickory Farms into our snacks. For over 60 years Hickory Farms has been America’s most famous holiday food gift brand, and I can distinctly remember the yummy spread on our dining room table.
A few ways that we are going to put a healthy spin on an old tradition is by pairing the meats and cheeses with fresh vegetables and fresh baked whole grain pita chips. I have also come up with a delicious iceberg lettuce wedge and garnishing it with Hickory Farms cheeses and meats rather than blue cheese and bacon. It is going to make a great addition to our snack spread. Hickory Farms has helped me appreciate shared moments that are worth embracing and creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones.
