Combining berries and yogurt into an easy-to-transport bark is just genius. Who knew healthy eating could be so simple. Get the recipe.

Cookies are obviously amazing, but probably not the greatest for your diet. So, try a healthier take on cookies by slicing apples really thin and covering them with nuts, chocolate and other toppings. Get the recipe.

13. Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups

Fruit leather is an incredibly simple way to eat fruit, and it’s surprisingly easy to make at home, too. Get the recipe.

14. Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chick Peas

If you’re looking for something salty that won’t blow your diet, look no further. Salt and vinegar roasted chick peas sound pretty yummy, if you ask me. Get the recipe.
