Stock your fridge with basic ingredients like sliced turkey, hummus, and nut butter, then use them in creative combinations next time you’re craving a snack instead of reaching for a bag of chips. Here are some easy ideas:

• Spread celery sticks with vegetable cream cheese, then top with turkey
• Top a multigrain bagel with hummus and sliced tomato
• Dip pear slices into nut butter, then sprinkle with granola
