Healthy Appetizers For Holiday Parties
WOW your holiday guests with these luscious but super healthy appetizers.
They are the creations of the award-winning chefs at the Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa in Miami, which has been showing people how pleasurable healthy eating can be since 1975.
What a gift for your guests! Appetizers rich in flavor but light, very light, in saturated fat and other unhealthy ingredients.
Celebrate the season – and your good health – with these healthy, delish appetizers! Tangerine Scallops. Salmon Balls. Artichoke Bottoms With Salsa. And Stuffed Red Bliss Potatoes. Yum! You’ll enjoy loads of flavor without loading up your arteries and waistline with calories and health-damaging saturated fat, salt, and sugar.
Add citrusy zest to your party table with these plump, gorgeous scallops marinated in tangerines, dill, and garlic. So much flavor! But so few calories, fat, and sodium!
Enjoy these little cuties not only as an appetizer but also blended with pasta, or as a savory filler for sandwiches with baby lettuce and sliced cucumbers, pita-style.
Stuffed Red Bliss Potatoes
Typically, stuffed potatoes and skins are stuffed, literally, with butter and cheese, tallying up scary amounts of saturated fat, which can stuff our poor arteries with plaque. The Loaded Potato Skins at Chili’s Restaurants, for example, have 35 grams of sat fat. It’s like eating 14 pats of butter. With our recipe, you get 0 grams of sat fat, yet loads of creamy, delicious flavor.
Stuffed Artichoke Bottoms with Black Bean Salsa
Make a double batch of our lively black bean salsa and enjoy in all sorts of ways. Half can be your stuffing for these artichoke bottoms but then, maybe within the next day or two, enjoy your remaining salsa as a topping for green salads, poultry, or fish, or blended with whole-grain rice, or ladled into a steaming baked potato.
