Looking for an inexpensive gift to give this year? We've got one that tastes delicious and is easy to make.
All you'll need is some mason jars and to do a little grocery shopping and you're ready to give an impressive gift.
Grace Derocha, a dietitian with Blue Cross Blue Shield, joined us in studio to share some ideas with us.
She recommends a ranch spice kit or a taco seasoning spice kit. Slap on a "season's greetings" tag (get it?) and you've got a fun, useful little gift that could work for a whole family. They're great for someone who loves to cook, or for a family that's watching their diet because these homemade blends come without all the extra sodium and preservatives.
Another go-to is what we call Grinch Balls. They're delicious mocha energy bites, with no added sugar.
Another idea is cinnamon roasted almonds. You can easily make a big batch at one time and separate them out into all the gifts you'll need to give. The cinnamon helps stabilize sugar and almonds are a heart healthy fat.
