Do the appetizers you serve look like this?
Not any more. Prepackaged, frozen foods are often loaded with salt, sugar and fat. Who
needs that, when you can make appetizers that are just as delicious, and even more nutritious?
Instead of frozen potato skins, make your own. Just scoop the pulp out of small, red
potatoes, and fill them with a little sharp Cheddar cheese, chopped asparagus, diced ham
and chives. Give your spinach dip a healthy makeover by using reduced-fat cream cheese,
instead of regular. Opt for yogurt and cottage cheese rather than mayo to boost protein.
And, adding extra veggies like water chestnuts and shallots never hurts either. Finally,
skip the premade, frozen mini quiches. Instead fill mini phyllo cups with Brie and apples.
It’s an easy way to make a classic app. Now you can serve up healthy bites without anyone
even knowing the difference.
