Orville Redenbacher Healthy Holiday Snacking Giveaway

I am one of those people who can go all day without eating, but by the time 5pm rolls around I am starving and eat everything in site. I’m quite the picture of health, aren’t I?

I need to lose what I still call “the baby weight”, although with an 18 month old now, I’m not so sure I can use that excuse anymore. I think I’ll lovingly refer to my extra pounds as the “I’m just too lazy and like food too much,weight”. I plan on officially joining Weight Watchers again in January as their POINTS system (which is new and now includes most fruits for 0 POINTs…have you heard?) combined with exercise and a focus on portion control really seems to work well for me.

I know that in order to be successful with any weight loss plan, I need to incorporate healthy snacking instead of end of day gorging into my life. We love popcorn around here because it is tasty, easy to make and filling. In addition, it is a great source of fiber and is often low in calories. I’m excited to learn more about popcorn and healthy snacking during the Twitter Girls Night Out party on Monday, December 6th. Hope you’ll join in!

In conjunction with Orville Redenbacher, Mom it Forward (the creators of Twitter Girls Night Out) and Dine & Dish, one of my lucky readers will win an Orville Redenbacher prize pack (ARV $50). The prize pack includes a really cool red popcorn bowl from Crate & Barrel, a variety of Orville Redenbacher popcorn (Light Butter, Lime and Salt, Cheddar and Kettle Corn) as well as a variety of healthy snack recipe mix-ins to go with some of the recipes on the Orville Redenbacher site. How fun is that? To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite healthy holiday snack is.

    I love love love apple wedges dipped in peanut butter. That’s healthy, right?! :D

  2. Hi Kristen, One of my favorite holiday snacks is a combination of pistachios and dried cranberries. I love to mix them up for a festive snack at a holiday gathering and then leave a bowl out on the counter when I’m feeling the urge to satisfy my hunger and need something quickly. They taste great together but also look festive because they are red and green.

  3. Love, Love, Love Orville Redenbacher popcorn!

  4. Homemade Chex cereal mix… yum!

  5. What a fun giveaway. I’m with you on the “I’m just too lazy and like food too much,weight”. Life’s too short not to eat what you love!

  6. roasted nuts of any kind… also roasted squash seeds.

  7. Ooh I don’t snack on healthy popcorn nearly enough!! My fave healthy holiday snack would have to be seasonal yogurts (currently obsessed with Light & Fit’s Orchard Pear!). If I have a sweet craving, but it’s late and I don’t want to eat more, I sip on Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleighride tea :)

  8. Chocolate, chocolate, and more….chocolate.

  9. My favorite healthy holiday snack is pumpkin bread made with applesauce to replace the oil as well as lower sugar. It’s so good and you can’t tell the difference!

  10. I love clementines this time of year

  11. …are eggnog latte’s considered a healthy holiday snack?? It goes well with everything!

    I don’t suppose sausage balls are considered a healthy holiday snack? I really love a smoothie for a snack any time of year!

  16. April in CT says:
