Buy This: 3 Atlanta-made products for healthier eating in 2017

Did you vow to eat better in 2017? Check out these three local products that will keep you on the whole foods track – even when a snack attack strikes.

Good Habit Super Toppers

If eating a better breakfast is on your list of resolutions, oatmeal is an excellent source of fiber, and plain yogurt delivers a nice dose of protein. But let's admit it: by themselves, they can be a bit boring. Toppings like nuts, seeds and spices enliven that bowl of morning goodness, and Marietta health food business Good Habit makes it easy with its line of Super Topper blends like Ginger Spice, Spiced Apple & Figs, and our favorite, Vanilla Maple, which also tastes sensational in a smoothie. $8.99 - $9.99/7.25-oz. package, Available at all Atlanta-area Whole Foods Market; Sevanada Natural Foods Market Co-Op, 467 Moreland Ave. N.E., Atlanta, 404-681-2831,; Nuts ‘n Berries, 4274 Peachtree Road N.E., Brookhaven, 404-254-0330,; and Amy's Natural Foods, 10591 Old Alabama Road Connector, Alpharetta, 770-998-9500,

Our latest favorite crostini topping is this artichoke lemon pesto from Atlanta-based Bella Cucina. Fleshy artichoke combines with the funk of Parmesan cheese, the richness of extra-virgin olive oil and the zingy of citrus for a fine change-up to the chips-and-dip routine. $12/6-oz. jar, Joseph and Co., 925 Garrett St., Atlanta. 404-228-6033,

Sway Tomato Jam is a collaboration between Thomas McKeown, executive chef at Sway at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and local pickling company Doux South.

Sway Tomato Jam

We’re smitten with the tomato jam that Thomas McKeown, executive chef at Sway at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, created in collaboration with local pickling phenom Doux South. The savory jam tastes deceptively like quince paste, which explains why we can’t get enough of it paired with Manchego cheese on crackers. $8/6-oz. jar, Hyatt Regency Atlanta (in the market lobby), 265 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, 404 577 1234,
