Maybe you are excited about your NYE party tonight. But maybe you also have new year's resolutions on your mind too. Hmmm. Wouldn't it be nice if you could enjoy some reasonable party food that tasted great and got you started on eating healthy?
This morning I had the honor of being on News4Jax sharing some ideas to help you deal with the above dilemma. Read on and swing by the store now to pick up some last minute (healthy) party foods. Or, keep these ideas for some satisfying afternoon snacks that will power you through the day and keep away the excess calories.
- Get your whole grains in with these Whole Wheat Toritlla Pinwheels. They are super easy, pretty to look at and definitely tasty. They make a great lunch too. Stuff these babies with lots of chopped bell peppers!
- Serve tasty bagel chips to satisfy your need for crunch. They are a great option for both sweet and savory preferences because they have half the fat of regular chips. Top savory chips with hummus and cucumber, brushetta, cheese, salsa, black bean dip or any other veggie-filled topping.
- Cabot cheddar cheese is full of flavor so a little goes a long way. Healthy eating is not always about eating as few calories or fat grams as possible. Use just 1 oz of this uber flavorful cheese with sliced apples (my favorite) or with this great Black Olive Tapenade. I also love this company and all they stand for.
What do you think? Do any of these sound good to you? What are you serving tonight? Don't forget to also check out my NYE (easy) Mojo Pork and Black Beans recipe. If you are new to FFP, thanks for stopping by and check out my 2013 in Review post to get caught up.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
