Yesterday we went over four appetizers that are healthy additions to those hard-to-handle cocktail plates. Today we serve up appetizer options to avoid this holiday season!
- Dips. Skip the artificially flavored dips and opt for fresh salsa instead.
- Cocktail franks and mini-meatballs. Neither is a good source of protein and both can pack a big serving of sodium. Choose peel-and-eat shrimp or sushi instead.
- Anything fried. From mini-eggrolls and quiche to chicken wings, deep-fried foods contain altered fats that are detrimental to the body. Wholegrain crackers and a small slice of organic cheese can satisfy a savory craving with far fewer calories and fat.
- Foie gras. Give it a pass and choose hummus instead – an animal-friendly source of soluble fiber.
