Planning a healthy dinner or party menu is a breeze with this roundup of the best healthy appetizers. They are absolutely delicious and perfect for any event!
Appetizers are absolutely delicious and they provide the opportunity to try a little bit of a bunch of different recipes.
Appetizers are so amazing that they can be a meal too…if you eat enough of them! Sometimes we have friends over and we do a small bite night where we plan to just eat appetizers.
The big thing about appetizers that we have to talk about is that they can add up and before you’ve finished your plate, you’ve had a day’s worth of calories. Given we all at least go to a handful of holiday parties, we thought it would be a great idea to round up some of the best healthy appetizers. They add veggies and fruits and protein. Some are gluten-free and/or vegan appetizers. Some are just healthier versions of the old stand-bys.
They are delicious and healthier for you—and you are absolutely going to love them. Add a few of these recipes to your Christmas Party or New Year’s Eve Party menu. You will not regret it!
