Healthy Party Foods

In the next couple weeks you may be faced with hosting or attending a football party, or an Academy Awards party.  I put together a few suggestions for healthy options for party food.  And actually, you will love these so much you will just want to make them "just because"!

Obvious things like fruit or veggies platters are easy, but people often pass over that for the fatty and sugary foods.  But you can make them more attractive with a delicious and healthy dip.  Hummus, of course is something we often suggest on meal plans and food logs.  Take it up a notch with Avocado Cilantro Hummus.  Another fantastic dip to serve with veggies and baked pita chips is 5 Layer Greek Dip.

Instead of a green salad, try this protein and nutrient packed Black Bean Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing.

My own recipe for Tomato, Avocado and Corn Salsa is awesome for eating with grilled chicken, tortilla chips or adding on top of salad.

Looking for a hot appetizer?  Try these Low Fat Artichoke Spinach Dip Stuffed Mushrooms.  The recipe uses baby portabellas, you could use smaller mushrooms for bite size appetizers.
