This month, we’re taking on the National Nutrition Month challenge and looking to get our families excited about eating good-for-you foods … without giving up our favorite treats. But when you have picky eaters in your home, it can be challenging to get them excited about healthy snacks.

Let’s put a spin on some popular kid-approved snacks!
Pizza Roll Ups: The next time your little one is craving an after-school snack, skip the frozen pizza bites and try a healthier homemade alternative instead. Roll out Wholly Wholesome Gluten Free Pie Dough and cut out 12 rectangles. Fill each rectangle with mozzarella cheese and peperoni pieces. Carefully roll each rectangle into a ball and place in a greased baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and serve this kid approved tasty snack with marinara sauce!
Toaster Pastry: Put a healthy twist on this on-the-go breakfast by whipping up a healthier version. Unroll Wholly Wholesome Whole Wheat Organic Pie Dough and cut into six small rectangles. Fill each rectangle with your favorite jam and top with another piece of dough. Seal the edges with a fork and brush with an egg wash. Once baked and golden, you’ll have a healthier alternative your child will love!
So go ahead and indulge this month with a little help from Wholly Wholesome. Our all natural and gluten free baked goods help make your favorite treats better for you and your kids. For more mouth-watering recipe ideas, visit our Pinterest page updated weekly.

Sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect snack to fit your fitness routine. Lucky for you, our friends at MetaBall have created the perfect snacks that will fuel your on-the-go life! Created by Dr. Susan Abramson, MetaBall is a bite-sized energy snack that is free of the eight most common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, soy, dairy, wheat, eggs, fish and shellfish. With four different flavors, MetaBall will change the way you fuel your day!
If you’re looking for a specific flavor to fit your lifestyle, we’ve created a handy pairing guide to help you out!

Gym: Some things are classic for a reason. If you steer away from the latest workout fad, and prefer the tried and true equipment at the gym, then Apple Pie is your go-to. Before your next gym workout, savor the nostalgic flavors of this energy packed snack.
Outside of the Box: Are you always willing to try the latest workout craze? Do you thrive on variety and challenge? Then give Mixed Berry a try. Combining your favorite berries, this flavor is far from boring! Be sure to have a bag of Mixed Berry MetaBall on hand.
All of the Above: For some, it’s hard to choose just one fitness approach. So if you’re the type to join a class one day and pump weights the next, give Chocolate Cherry MetaBall a try! This rich and fruity flavor will give you the best of both worlds!

Making a mouth-watering quiche is a great way to enjoy a hot breakfast. One of our favorite recipes includes loads of fresh vegetables like spinach, mushrooms and peppers. This light but savory quiche is a healthy way to kick start your day!
While the oven is preheating to 425 degrees F, use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut an even number of heart shapes from the pie crust. Place a layer of hearts onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Place a tablespoon of filing and a few chocolate chips in the center of each heart. Brush the edges with the egg wash. Place a heart shaped pastry on top and seal the edges with a fork. Cut a slit in the top of the pastry and brush the top with the egg wash. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. We recommend serving these pies warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Celebrate a successful #NationalBakingMonth with these helpful hacks via @whollywholesome http://bit.ly/2eifkG4
We want to help you become the best baker you can be with a few simple (yet effective) hacks.
Hack #1:Making your own buttermilk. Nothing is worse than buying an ingredient for a dish and not having another use for it. Next time you need to bake with buttermilk, make your own by combining 1 cup of milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Once combined, let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
Hack #2: If you’re gluten free, make your own flour by grinding oats in a blender until they’re powdered. You’ll have a multi-purpose flour in no time.
Hack #3: Are your bananas still not ripe enough to bake with? Cook them in a 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes on a lined pan. As soon as they are black and soft, remove them and allow them to cool. Squeeze the banana out of the peel and then you’re ready to bake!
Hack #4: Nothing is worse than when you need softened butter, but you forget to leave it out in your prep work. The right way to soften your butter via the microwave? Make sure you’re using power level two and cook the butter for 8 to 10 seconds. Flip your quarter stick and repeat!
Hack #5: Go premade. Now, you may think we’re kidding. But we aren’t! Premade desserts can be just as good as the real thing!
