Okay, okay...I know using healthy and cocktail in the same sentence is a bit of an oxymoron, but with the rise in health and fitness awareness, the options for cocktails that won't totally mess with your diet are growing fast. Be Mixed, for example, is an all-natural, zero-calorie cocktail mixer that was launched last year by two female 29-year-old Harvard Business School graduates who were tired of settling for vodka sodas, while Fruits and Wine is a low-cal French rosé (they just launched three new flavors: Cherry Rosé, Grapefruit Rosé, and Strawberry Rosé). Hoping to get a bit more creative? For those looking to flex their mixology muscles, I turned to some of the country's leading experts and asked them to share their favorite "healthy" cocktails for spring!

Snacking is an inevitable part of most of our days, especially as the temperatures drop. You can never go wrong with veggies or a piece of fruit (say what you want...I don't trust any diet that tells you to cut out fruits - aside from dried ones and bananas since they have too much sugar), but sometimes our taste buds get the best of us and we want something a little bit naughty. Don't reach for over-processed chips and cookies! There are plenty of alternatives that while not health foods per se, are healthier as they have clean ingredients, as well as some vitamins and nutrients, protein, and fiber. Check out some standouts to add to your shopping list!
