Throwing a Fit (Party) – Party Food For The Health Conscious

If you love to entertain, you have probably encountered the dilemma of healthy food vs. tasty food. How do you serve your guests food they can eat with a good conscience that still tastes good? Well, here are a few suggestions by allfitrecipes.com.

Appetizers

As your guest begin to arrive, set out a veggie plate with low-fat dip options. Fresh, raw vegetables look very appealing and colorful. Include three colors of bell peppers cut into thin slices – green, red, and yellow or orange. Include broccoli (always a favorite), carrots and celery.

For an added twist, put out some lightly steamed asparagus, drizzled with a little olive oil and lemon.

Flatbread, or chapatis, present a delightful possibility. Cut them into wedges with a pizza cutter and put a wedge of spicy cheese into each piece. Wait until the guests arrive to put them in the microwave for just a minute and voila! – hot, melted cheese pockets.

Meat

Fitness-minded people adore protein, so it is hard to go wrong in this area as long as you keep an eye on the calories by avoiding fats. Pepperoni pizza is bad, but shrimp wheels are good.

One thing almost impossible to mess up is a rotisserie chicken. They’re cheap, tasty, readily available from any supermarket and pure muscle. Keep them warm until just before the guests arrive. Then cut them up into pieces that can be grasped with a pita wedge or stabbed with a fork. Serve stacked on a plate next to the pita wedges. (The ones that don’t have the cheese in them.)

Stews and soups

These are the least appreciated options to most parties. But they offer an endless variety of flavors and combinations. One of the undeniable aspects of a good party is when the guests go away with an experience they were neither expecting nor have experienced before. Oyster broccoli casserole or authentic Hungarian gulyaslevest hat the guests can serve themselves in small bowls (just for a taste, in case they don’t like it) provide such an experience. If they don’t like it, nothing lost. But if they do – you just threw an unforgettable party, no matter whatever else happens.

Dessert

For health and fitness, you can’t go wrong with apple cobbler made without sugar or refined carbohydrates. It’s just sliced apples interspersed with a little pineapple, maybe a sliced banana or two or perhaps some berries on a bed of oatmeal or granola and baked at 250 degrees for 40 minutes. It’s impossible to undercook because it’s just fruit with a little breakfast cereal. There’s nothing unhealthy in it and your guests will want to take the left-overs home in plastic containers for breakfast tomorrow.

One of the best aspects of all the above is that it is so easy to clean up.
